Physician Education Credits

How often must physicians attend risk management education sponsored by MPIE?

In order for physicians to maintain their 15% premium discount, they need to complete one educational activity in risk management or patient safety topic annually. Physicians may attend MPIE sponsored education or similar education offered by other entities that have prior approval by the MPIE Risk Manager. If you have a program in mind that you think may qualify, please contact Risk Management at or 616.202.2288 to ensure the program meets MPIE’s requirements.
