Chronic Pain and End-of-Life Training

Chronic Pain and End-of-Life Training Iowa-licensed physicians are required to complete 2 hours of Category 1 credits for chronic pain management and 2 hours of Category 1 credits for end-of-life care every five years. These requirements, which became effective August 17, 2011, are for physicians who provide primary care to patients (e.g., emergency physicians, family physicians, general practice physicians, internists, neurologists, pain medicine specialists, and psychiatrists.)

The lectures on this site are intended to help UI physicians fulfill this educational requirement and ensure licensure from the Iowa Board of Medicine. Upon completion of each module, you will be able to generate your own credit letter, or you may call our office during normal business hours and request a transcript. (Extension 5-8599).

Please note that not all the presentations are a full hour. A 60-minute presentation is equal to one hour of credit, so be sure to note the length of the lecture before making your selections.
