CME Requirements for Physician License Renewal in Illinois

Physicians in Illinois must earn 150 hours of continuing medical education (CME) credit in a three-year relicensure period. For 2020 license renewals, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) introduced two new CME requirements concerning safe opioid prescribing and sexual harassment prevention.

To help physicians navigate CME requirements and changes, we've compiled a list of reliable sources of information and educational opportunities.
