The Florida Board of Medicine and the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine are responsible for setting the CME requirements for licensure and relicensure in Florida. Each Board specifies a certain number of hours, including some mandatory topics, that must be completed within each two year licensure term. For example Preventing Medical Errors and Domestic Violence are two required subjects with a rotating schedule of completion.
Half of Florida allopathic licenses expire January 31st of every even numbered year (2014, 2016, etc.) and the other half expire January 31st of every odd numbered year (2013, 2015, etc.). All osteopathic licenses expire March 31st of every even numbered year. You’ll get reminders from the DOH, hospital and insurance plans, and CAQH.
