Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Professional Expense
(licensing/certification) Guideline for Advanced Practice Providers


Effective Date: 07/01/2013
Supersedes Guideline Dated: 07/01/2008

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this guideline is to define the CME and professional expense benefits
provided for Advanced Practice Providers (APP). These benefits are designed to assist
APPs with professional expense fees as well as fees associated with job-related
continuing professional education (seminars, conferences and their associated
expenses).

Professional Expense and Continuing Medical Education (CME) Benefit:

The recommended minimum standard annual CME benefit is $1750 with up to 5 days
of paid leave. The 5 paid leave days and CME benefit is pro-rated based on the APPs
scheduled FTE and is rounded to the nearest full day. All CME amounts are calculated
on a fiscal year basis (July 1 to June 30). Newly hired APP leave days and dollars are
pro-rated based on hire date for the first year.

Licensing and Certification Reimbursement Benefit:

APPs with 0.50 FTE and higher will be reimbursed for the professional expenses that
are required to practice in their position (not pro-rated to FTE), such as:

WI PA or APNP license
National recertification (ANCC, NCCPA, etc.)
DEA license
Other certifications (as required by department/section)

The mandated professional expenses are a departmental expense and will be
budgeted annually by UWMF administration.

Additional CME funds above the recommended minimum annual benefit are available
on a case-by-case basis with department/division/section approval based on
organizational/departmental needs and benefit to the applicable clinical practice. The
additional funds would be expensed by the department.
