We have requested a total of 23.7 CLE hours from most MCLE states. Lawyers seeking credit in Pennsylvania must pay fees of $1.50 per credit hour directly to the PA CLE Board. Medical Education Collaborative pays applicable fees in other states where the sponsor is required to do so, and in states where a late fee may become applicable. Please be aware that each state has its own rules and regulations, including its definition of CLE; therefore, certain programs may not receive credit in some states.
