In support of improving patient care, NetCE is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

The Alaska State Medical Board accepts courses from any provider who is ACCME-accredited and awards AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

Continuing Education Requirement

Attention Alaska Physicians and Osteopathic Physicians: Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases and an increase in licensing volume, the division has extended the regular licensing period for Medical Board licensees through April 1, 2021. The Board is asking that licensees submit renewal applications as soon as possible to allow ample time for processing. You may check your license expiration date by using the Board's online License Search function. For more information, please visit https://www.commerce.alaska.gov/web/cbpl/ProfessionalLicensing/State-MedicalBoard.aspx.

Additionally, the State Medical Board approved a fifty percent reduction of CME requirements for the 2019-2020 licensing period, which is still in place through April 1, 2021. For more information, please visit https://www.commerce.alaska.gov/web/portals/5/pub/MED_Board-Order_CME_Reduction.pdf.
