Continuing Education Company (CEC), a provider of live primary care continuing medical education (CME) conferences, launched CME365™, a website that offers online CME courses. The company says it created the new website in response to a growing demand for commercial-free, online medical education that makes it easy for clinicians to earn their CME credits.
The first course offered on CME365™ is a “Pulmonology Explained Clearly”, 16-hour comprehensive review of common pulmonary diseases. It was developed in partnership with MedCram, a provider of online medical lectures on YouTube.
According to Sarah Lundquist-Galloway, CEC’s Director of Instructional Design, "This course takes a departure from the traditional slide and lecture commonly offered online. The state of the art, dynamic and interactive interface and graphics will keep you engaged,"
Additional online courses will be available soon, including a dermatology review that will include a comprehensive library of images and procedural videos. CEC says it is also developing a series of simulation-based courses that will let clinicians learn while treating virtual patients – and that these learning formats were engineered to increase learning and retention.
All courses will offer AAFP Prescribed credits, AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, and will be approved for American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) MOC points. Visitors to CEC’s live conference website will be able to access CME365™ (http://www.CME365.com) directly from the home page – and the CME365™ learning center lets both online learners and live conference attendees track their credits and print certificates transcripts.
