Michigan License

Renewal Resources

In December 2016, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs announced revised Medical Rules. With these new rules came new requirements for Continuing Medical Education. Significant changes to be aware of include:

• Training Standards for Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking – This is a one-time training that is separate from continuing education. Licensees renewing for 2017 must complete training by renewal in 2020; renewals for 2018 by 2021, and renewals for 2019 by 2022. Beginning in 2021, completion of the training is a requirement for initial licensure.

• Education on Pain and Symptom Management – Starting in December 2017, a minimum of three hours of continuing education shall be earned in the area of pain and symptom management.

• Medical Ethics – A minimum of one-hour of continuing education shall be earned in the area of medical ethics

Multiple resources are available. Some have a fee. A comprehensive listing of these resources is too time intensive. The following are suggested resources.
