Duty to Report - State Medical Board of Ohio new CE Requirement

Effective May 31, 2021, physicians (MDs, DOs and DPMs) are required to complete one hour of Continuing Medical Education (CME) on the topic of a licensee’s duty to report misconduct, with enforcement to commence with renewal or reinstatement applications submitted on or after July 1, 2021.

The board has created a one-hour course designed to educate physicians on the duty to report to the State Medical Board of Ohio. It features a nationally renowned psychiatrist, dedicated board member, board staff and a patient’s experience with failure to report. The video is divided into three distinct sections: duty to report, sexual misconduct and how to report. At the end of each section, you will have the opportunity to evaluate what you learned through a review of questions and answers. A certificate of completion will be provided from the state medical board. It can either be printed or screenshot for your records. As with all CME, records of completion should be kept in accordance with rule 4731-10-08. A link to the board-approved course is below.
