Physician's with time-limited certificates issued before 2012 must complete 300 credits by the end of the year 10.
The Alaska State Medical Board requires 50 AMA- or AOA-approved CME credits. For license renewals, at least two of the total hours of CME that are required to qualify for renewal must be specific to pain management and opioid use and addiction. Courses must be category 1 of AMA-approved education or Category 1 or 2 of AOA-approved education. For a podiatrist, it may instead be earned in a continuing medical education program from a provider that is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME).
