 Q: Are Category 2 CME hours required?

A: According to the North Carolina Medical Board:

Category 2 CME hours are no longer required and may not be counted to satisfy the CME requirements. The Board encourages licensees to continue to complete CME, whether Category 1 or 2 hours, above and beyond the minimum required, as their time permits. Many Category 2 CME activities may be useful to licensees.

For more information on CME requirements, visit the FAQ page on the Medical Board’s website.
