Candidates for the CUC Pilot must demonstrate their involvement in continuing medical education by documenting 90 CME credits (30 urology focused Category 1 credits and 60 Category 1 or 2 credits) within the three-year period between March 31, 2018 and April 1, 2021. For those participating in the 2021 CUC Pilot, the CME requirement is reduced to 70 total CME credits and 10 of those must be Category 1 Credits. Documentation of the requisite CME hours must be sent to the American Board of Urology office by April 1, 2021.
The Virginia Board of Medicine requires 60 CME hours every two years, of which a minimum of 30 must be Category 1 credits and no more than 30 may consist of Category 2 credits. Additionally, the Board requires at least 2 hours of Controlled Substances CME that may be part of the Category 1 requirement.
