Free New Human Trafficking Prevention CME Requirement and Course

House Bill 2059 (86th Legislature) requires physicians, physician assistants, and any licensee of the TMB's advisory boards or committees that provide direct patient care, to complete a human trafficking prevention course approved by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). This requirement applies to the renewal of a license on or after September 1, 2020.

HHSC is the approving body for the human trafficking prevention requirement. HB 2059 requires HHSC to approve training courses on human trafficking, including at least one that is free of charge.

HHSC now has an approved course available, which is free of charge, that satisfies the requirements for all licensees impacted by HB 2059.

See HHSC's Health Care Practitioner Human Trafficking Training page to access the course and for more information about this requirement.
• The course is self-paced online modules.  Found here:
