Pennsylvania physicians now have access to free child abuse CME that meets the state’s licensure requirements.
Under the amended Child Protective Services Law (CPSL), all physicians must complete approved training on child abuse recognition and reporting as a condition of licensure.
Initial license – Physicians must complete three hours of approved training to obtain an initial license to practice in Pennsylvania.
License renewal – Physicians must obtain two hours of approved training each cycle to renew their license.
Who needs child abuse clearance? Please note that child abuse clearance is entirely separate from the Pennsylvania CME licensure requirement.
