Welcome to the Utah Medical Association

The Utah Medical Association (UMA) was established in 1895 as both a means of sharing and promoting scientific advancements in medicine and allowing social interaction among colleagues. Over the decades since its inception, UMA has evolved into the state's foremost advocacy arm for the profession, protecting and enhancing the environment in which medicine is practiced in Utah, while providing membership benefits to assist in the day to day practice of the profession.

Education for Controlled Substance Prescribers

Required Course for License Renewal

In Utah, legislation was passed that requires health care providers licensed to prescribe controlled substances to complete 3.5 hours of Department of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) approved continuing education on Schedule II and III controlled substances that are applicable to opioid narcotics, hypnotic depressants, and psychostimulants. (Utah Code Section 58-37-6.5) This required education is intended to reduce the negative effects of controlled substances in Utah.

The UMA Foundation course, CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES: EDUCATION FOR THE PRESCRIBER, is approved by DOPL and available online. You may take the course in one sitting or incrementally and at your convenience from work, home, or any location with internet access. Click here to get instructions on how to begin the registration process or to re-access the course.

Note: In addition to this course, DOPL requires controlled substance prescribers to complete the thirty-minute Controlled Substance Database (CSD) tutorial and examination. This is the same DOPL course that you have already been taking every two years for licensure renewal.
