So much continuing medical education (CME) now occurs via e-learning technologies. It's so convenient to view activities on your computer, your smartphone/PDA, or even to listen to audio programs on an MP3 player like an iPod. It's easier than ever to stay current on medical news, clinical updates, and much more thanks to computing technology.
How do you leverage e-learning technologies? It's hard to imagine how you could keep up with all the safety alerts, the FDA warnings, clinical breakthroughs, and other important medical news without modern technology. Have you tried listening to some educational podcasts on your iPod? How about live webcasts?
Reports from the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) have shown that the uptake of e-learning for CME continues to climb each year. Now that travel costs are so high, fewer physicians are traveling to major medical meetings. Instead, they are learning through their computers.
