ISMS Offers Free Courses Designed to Fulfill Your Licensure Requirement for Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
Posted on: 3/25/2019

New law affects ALL licensed Illinois physicians

In 2018, a new law took effect requiring all Illinois licensed professionals who need continuing education to renew their licenses to complete 1 hour of education related to sexual harassment prevention. The 1 hour CME requirement is part of the 150 hours needed to renew one’s license – not in addition to the 150 hour CME requirement.

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) has proposed the rules for what fulfills the educational requirement related to sexual harassment prevention training. 

Good news! ISMS offers coursework designed to meet this requirement – FREE to members and their staffs via our Education Center.

Each on-demand course below is designed to fulfill the 1 hour CME requirement on its own. Clinical psychologist and medical educator Daniel O’Connell, PhD, presents the courses in our "Sexual Misconduct in the Medical Setting" series:

  • Part 1: Among Colleagues
  • All workplaces share the desire for staff to feel free from unwanted intrusions of a sexual nature. It is also required by law that workplaces have an organized approach to prevent, investigate and remedy situations in which unwanted sexual invitations, comments, innuendos and pressures are experienced. Dr. O’Connell discusses sexual misconduct
    specific to the medical setting.

The new law will apply to license renewals starting Jan. 1, 2020.  

To access all of our other courses, visit the ISMS Education Center and peruse the entire course catalog.
