The Mississippi Academy of Physician Assistants would like to invite you to join us at our 2 day Controlled Substance Education Program (CSEP) and CME Conference on August 20th-21st 2015. MAPA has applied for a total of 20 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME for this event. The first day of the event consists of 10 hours of controlled substance education which is required by the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure (MSBML) to obtain and maintain a DEA license in Mississippi. This is the only MSBML approved controlled substance education program for PAs in the state. The second day consists of a CME event focusing on a review of important topics in health care and family practice.
In order to obtain prescriptive authority to prescribe controlled substances in Mississippi, the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure requires the Physician Assistant to first attend a board approved educational program prior to applying for prescriptive authority of controlled substances. As a bonus, MAPA has added an additional day of generalized CME to aid in obtaining your 50 hours of CME required by the MSBML each year. This will include lectures in cardiology, pulmonology, ENT, OB/GYN, Rheumatology, and a medical imaging review.
Day one only member: $275
Day one only non-member: $375
Two day member: $400
Two day non-member: $500
You can register for the member price by joining MAPA for an annual membership fee of $100. Please see below for details on how to join.
