Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act CME Requirements – Offered by UpToDate

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 enacted a new one-time, eight-hour training requirement for all Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)-registered practitioners on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders. The training requirement Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act is in effect as of June 2023. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Justice website.

Continuing education (CE) credits earned from reading certain UpToDate topics will meet the training requirement. Earn 0.5 credits for each eligible topic viewed. The training does not have to occur in one session. It can be cumulative across multiple sessions that equal eight hours of training.
