Currently Available Pain Management and End-of-Life Classes
The following pain management and end-of-life courses meet the mandated one-time 12-hour requirement taken within four years of licensure or by the second renewal date. The Medical Board will accept courses or programs from an approved provider that address one or both topics. The 12 hours may be divided in any way that is relevant to the physician's specialty and practice setting. Acceptable courses may address either topic individually or both topics together. It is not necessary to send and/or fax your completed pain management and end-of-life certificates unless you are being audited.
