    Enacted under Article II, § 17(c) of the Maryland Constitution, May 30, 2021

    ​The law requires all health care practitioners in Maryland to attest that they have completed an implicit bias training program on their license renewal application.

    What does this mean for you?

    When you complete your 2022 license renewal application, you will need to have completed one of the implicit bias training courses approved by the Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities.   

    Currently, the only approved implicit bias training course that earns continuing education (CE) hours for licensure renewal is the APTA Maryland Implicit Bias Training for three (3) contact hours (.3 CEUs). All other courses listed do not count towards your continuing education hours but will satisfy the implicit bias training requirement for licensure renewal.

    For a complete listing of the approved implicit bias training courses, please click on this link​.

    For courses that do not produce a certificate of completion:

    The Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities has recommended that in the absence of a certificate of completion from one of the State-approved courses posted on our website you keep your proof of registration in the course or take a screenshot of the final completion screen in the event a situation arises that calls for verification of completion.  

    At the time of your license renewal, you will attest to the completion of the training by checking the appropriate box in your renewal application. You are only required to attest to the completion of the training once. You will not need to repeat this attestation during subsequent renewals.

     Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns."​
