Meet the New DEA CME Requirement with ABEM Modules

Aug 22, 2023

Updated November 9, 2023

ABEM now offers Substance Use Disorder and Opioid Use Disorder modules to assist physicians in meeting the DEA requirement for CME. The two learning modules are available as an added benefit to ABEM-certified physicians.

 Substance Use Disorder (4 CME credits)
 Opioid Use Disorder (2 CME credits)
Earn CME Credit for the MyEMCert Social and Behavioral Health Module
ABEM-certified physicians have free access to the modules if they are up to date on their annual certification fee. Low-cost CME credit for these modules can be applied toward the new DEA requirement. To use these modules to meet the DEA CME requirement, you must register for the optional CME credit when you register for the free modules. We are proud to partner with AAEM and ACEP, the CME providers for these learning modules. Fees for the CME option go directly to the CME providers.

It is simple to get started!

✔  Review the learning resources
✔  Sign in to the ABEM Portal to register for the free module and low-cost CME
✔  Start the modules!

In addition to ABEM-certified physicians, the Substance Use Disorder and Opioid Use Disorder modules are available to residents, physicians who are in the initial certification process, and those who are subspecialty certified by ABEM with primary certification by another ABMS Board. To find out how to access, please contact ABEM at 517-332-4800, option 2 or staycertified@abem.org.

These modules will not count as part of ABEM certification requirements but are optional learning opportunities. Both modules are intended to provide pragmatic, practice-changing information that will result in improved emergency care. Even if you do not need the CME credits, the learning resources are accessible to all, and the modules are available at no cost to boost your knowledge.
