Post-Viral Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS): What Every Clinician Needs to Know

This is a FREE CME webinar on the diagnosis and treatment of post-viral syndromes developing in the wake of COVID-19, including Long COVID and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS).  With experts at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere conservatively estimating that 10% of COVID-19 patients will go on to develop post-viral ME/CFS, Arizona medical providers and students must learn immediately to recognize and treat the thousands of Arizonans expected to develop this disabling disease in 2021.

Click here to find the CME. Please note that this CME is sponsored by Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, the NY State Department of Health Clinical Education Initiative (CEI) and The Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Action Network of New York. The CME is accredited for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit through the University of Rochester School of Medicine.

To take the CME, participants must first sign up for a free MyCEI account. Once the account is created, click the button “Watch this Learning Module.” On the new screen that opens, click the button at the bottom of the screen that says “Enroll.” This will start the CME video.


Links for Opioid CME Requirements

The Arizona Senate and House voted unanimously to approve the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act during a late night, January 25, 2018 special session. Under the new bill, PCMS members authorized to prescribe schedule II controlled substances and have a DEA registration number are required to complete a minimum of three hours of opioid-related substance use disorder-related or addiction-related CME each license renewal cycle.

For your convenience, the following links offer opportunities to fulfill legislative requirements.  Others may be available through your specialty society or other organizations.
