Working to meet Indiana’s new opioid CME requirement for physicians licensed to prescribe controlled substances just got easier. ISMA is proud and excited to offer the new "ISMA Online" mobile app, developed through a grant from the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation to the Indiana Medical Foundation.
"ISMA Online" makes mandatory continuing medical education (CME) on opioid prescribing and abuse free and accessible to all Indiana physicians. The app is part of ISMA’s comprehensive program to educate physicians about the opioid crisis using innovative technology. We look forward to providing other high-quality CME through the app in the future.
CERTIFICATES / REPORTING YOUR CME COMPLETION TO THE MEDICAL LICENSING BOARD (MLB)

Once you have successfully completed an activity, you will receive an email from email@example.com containing confirmation of completion and your CME certificate.
Each opioid series course counts toward meeting Indiana’s requirement that all licensed physicians applying for or renewing a Controlled Substances Registration (CSR) must have completed two hours of CME on opioid prescribing and abuse in the previous two years.
If you are a licensed physician making your initial application for a CSR, you will need to submit your certificates of completion for the required two hours of opioid CME to the Medical Licensing Board (MLB) with your application.
If you are a licensed physician renewing a CSR, you will be asked to attest on your CSR renewal application that you have completed the two hours of CME. You do not need to submit certificates of completion to the MLB with your renewal application. Instead, the MLB may audit up to 10% of licensees to ensure compliance, so be sure to retain certificates of completion. The MLB recommends keeping certificates for three years from your CSR expiration date.
