300 reasons CME is evolving

My, how far CME has come in the age of technology! It seems like just yesterday that CME was in the infancy stage of being offered through websites and portals. But now with the advent of ReachMD and its unique XM Radio/iPhone/social media approach to CME, physicians truly have a wide range of mediums to increase their knowledge. And it doesn’t stop there. According to the Bernard Sklar’s CME List their are more than 300 CME sites/portals/apps/podcasting available through the internet today compared to 87 just 10 years ago. And when you look at the physician participants from that time frame the numbers have increased by more than 4 million (181,922 to 4,365,013).

So where are all of these physicians spending most of their time? The top 30 CME sites (according to #hours available) are below.

Interesting just how many quality opportunities there are for obtaining CME. While not in the list of the top 30, there is another site that has been providing clinicians with access to some of the premier thought leaders in several different therapeutic areas located at http://www.TheCMELounge. Like the others, the CME Lounge offers the ability to learn when and where you want. It’s worth a look!
