The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services Requirements

CE: 30 Hours of Category I, AMA or AOA for Physicians. There are no Continuing Education requirements for Physician Assistants.

Licenses must be renewed every two years. MD Physicians: renewal date remains 10/31/odd and your CE deadline date remains 12/31/odd. DO Physicians: renewal and CE deadline dates will both be 2/29/even.

CME Change for Upcoming Renewals: For the next two renewals for both MD and DO physicians, each license holder will be required to take two of the required 30 hours via a Board-approved course on responsible opioid prescription. Physicians who do not hold a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration number to prescribe controlled substances are exempted under the rules.
