Proclamation 20-32 Ends on October 27th: Waivers Conclude, CME Requirements Reinstated

Proclamation 20-32, along with others, was in place during the COVID-19 public health emergency. It will end this Thursday, October 27, along with waivers and holds on continuing medical education (CME) requirements.

Continuing Medical Education

The Washington Medical Commission (WMC) is exercising enforcement discretion for practitioners regarding the resumption of CME requirements and offering a grace period. Visit our website for a timetable of CME attestation requirements.

Informational Webinar:

The WMC licensed professions listed in Proclamation 20-32 was the focus of previous profession-specific notices. If you did not receive these notices or have questions, please watch our Webinar on Proclamation 20-32 ending.

Suicide Training

Our office has received questions regarding the required suicide training. Visit our website for FAQs regarding Suicide Assessment, Treatment, Management Training or for a specific list of training courses visit the Department of Health model list webpage.

AIDS Training

Previous versions of this email stated that MDs had to start accumulating four hours of AIDS education – that is incorrect and no longer a requirement.
