​Level II Re-Accreditation

This course is available to current Level II Accredited physicians seeking re-accreditation. Level II re-accreditation is required every three years in order for physicians to retain their Level II Accreditation. The course can be completed online or through attending a live seminar. The seminar will include small-group, problem-based training sessions on the updated Medical Treatment Guidelines in addition to skill-building workshops on Cumulative Trauma, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and Traumatic Brain Injury Impairment Ratings. If you are seeking limited re-accreditation, please email our office at cdle_dowc_provider_education@state.co.us for specific seminar attendance requirements.

Note: Seminar participants who leave early will be required to complete and return any missed material in order to finalize the re-accreditation process.
