Under the regulations, if less than 36 months have passed since an interpreting physician’s starting date, will they still be evaluated for continuing education during an inspection?

If less than 36 months have passed since a physician’s starting date, insufficient time has passed to cite the facility during an inspection for any failure of this physician to meet the continuing education requirements. However, inspectors will try to draw the attention of facilities to situations in which it appears that personnel will not be likely to fulfill continuing education requirements in a timely manner.
