DCMS Members Dr. William Palmer, Dr. Ferdinand Formoso, and Dr. Sunil Joshi were presenters at the free opioid CME presentation at Mayo Clinic Tuesday evening.

On Tuesday night, nearly 500 Mayo Clinic physicians and DCMS members gathered on the Mayo Clinic campus to receive, at no cost, the newly state-mandated 2-hour Opioid CME course.

As you know, the new Opioid Prescribing Law goes in to effect this Sunday, July 1. At that time, you will need to follow the strict rules on 3-day prescribing for opioids and accessing the E-FORCSE program for all Schedule drug prescriptions.
