    Thank you for your question.  Yes, beginning the 2017/2018 licensure cycle, a physician with an active retired license who maintains an active DEA license must fulfill the 2 CME opioid training licensure renewal requirement.  The requirement is based on the licenses actively maintained.

    I have an active DEA license, but do not have a practice any longer nor see any patients nor write any scripts, other than occasional refills of my or my wife's meds.


    In the face of the above do I need to take this course for re-licensing?

    Helpful information. I still do not feel comfortable prescribing. However, I now know more about why I should not prescribe. Need to have good organized follow up. Like anything, it is best done by someone or some system that does it regularly.

    Similar thinking as wanting a surgeon who has done the procedure several times before. 

    Thank you.

    Dr. Costello, thank you for reviewing this course.  In order to claim Category 1 CME credit, you do need to enter your Pennsylvania medical license number as part of the registration process.  If you are not currently licensed, I invite you to revisit the CME assessment once you’ve received your training license number. If you need training on opioids to receive your initial license, please consider taking our other opioids series found at

    Is there an assessment link for residents to receive CME credit for these sessions?

    Is there an assessment link for residents to receive CME credit for these sessions? I have completed the "Addressing PA’s Opioid Crisis: What the Health Care Team Needs to Know" modules which had specific assessments for those without a license number, but this does not seem to be available for this section. Thank you very much.
