Registering with TNCSMD (Tennessee Controlled Substances Monitoring Database)

House Staff with a Full, Active Tennessee Medical License AND an Active Personal DEA Number:

  1. Make sure your personal DEA # is loaded in RxStar.  If it is not, bring a copy of your current DEA certificate to the GME Office.
  2. Register at the link below using your personal DEA #.
  3. Choose "Practitioner" in the "Job" drop down.
  4. Complete the form, using a phone number and address where you can receive patient information (not the GME Office).

All Other House Staff:

  1. Look up the Vanderbilt DEA# (and your four-digit suffix, although you won't use the suffix for registering with TNCSMD) on the House Staff Portal.
  2. Register at the link below using the Vanderbilt DEA #.
  3. Choose "Resident/Fellow or Veteran's Affairs Practitioner" in the "Job" drop down.
  4. Complete the form, using a phone number and address where you can receive patient information (not the GME Office).

 

CLICK HERE then click "Register" to register with TNCSMD.  (Pathology residents/fellows - use "Hematology & Oncology" for the "Specialty Care" field.)

Note: Registering with TNCSMD requires a Social Security Number, and NPI Number, and a state-issued driver's license or identification card number (any state).  If you don't have one or more of these on your start date, register as soon as you do (must be within 30 days of your start date).

Any questions about the database can be addressed to CSMD.Admin@tn.gov.
