  • If you are not in possession of your current wallet card license or are unsure if your license is current, you may check your licensure status on-line. Go to the LSBME website at https://online.lasbme.org/#/verifylicense. Enter your information and click "search." You can then download and print the licensure status.
     
  • Pre-registration is required for all CLPC Spring/Summer Seminars via Zoom webinars because there is limited capacity in the Zoom webinar. You can always cancel if you are unable to attend. Applications will be handled on a first come, first served basis. If the seminar you choose is full, you will be notified by email.
     
  • In order to register and qualify for the CE certificate(s), please follow the following steps:
    • You MUST pre-register for the session(s) you are going to attend via Zoom. Use the link below to pre-register.
      NOTE: Unfortunately, Zoom limits each session to 300 attendees. Please register early as registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. If you register and decide not to attend the session, please e-mail us at CLPC@lsuhsc.edu to cancel your registration as we may have a waiting list for that session.
       
    • Once you have submitted your pre-registration, you will receive an e-mail with the Zoom information for each session for which you registered. BE SURE TO SAVE THIS E-MAIL, AS IT CONTAINS THE WEBLINK, SESSION NUMBER, AND PASSWORD REQUIRED TO BE ADMITTED INTO THE ZOOM SESSION. You should receive the registration confirmation e-mail within a week of registration.
       
    • Be sure you have downloaded the Zoom application to your computer or smartphone PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE SESSION. You can download Zoom from https://zoom.us/download#room_client or download the Zoom app from the Google Play store (PC/Android) as well as the App store (Apple).
       
    • On the day of the session, please use the weblink and password from step 2 to access the Zoom meeting. We will be beginning the sessions at the scheduled time. When you login, you will be placed into a waiting room and then be admitted into the Zoom meeting by LSUHSC.
       
    • At the end of the session, the presenter will announce a 4-digit PIN number. PLEASE WRITE THIS PIN NUMBER DOWN AS IT IS NECESSARY TO QUALIFY FOR YOUR CEU CERTIFICATE! After the session is over, go to the link below and complete the form to claim your CEU certificate. You will need your name, e-mail, license number, and the PIN number(s) from the session(s) you attended.
       
    • LSUHSC will crosscheck the registration from step 1 and the submitted PIN number(s) from step 5. Once it is confirmed that you pre-registered AND submitted the correct PIN number(s), a CE certificate will be e-mailed to you.
