Mobile CME Benefits and Top Mobile CME Courses

CMEList July 26, 2018

Earning CME credits with the hectic schedule of a physician can be difficult and cause quite an inconvenience. Physicians often find themselves constantly on the go and lacking enough time to attend a live CME conference or activity. Given this issue with earning CME credits, an increasing amount of physicians are turning to mobile CME courses to earn their CME credits.

Mobile CME courses offer physicians a chance to earn their CME credits on the go and at their own pace and convenience. In addition, many CME providers have a user-friendly mobile app, where CME providers can directly access their CME activities and earn their CME credits. The mobile apps tend to have a very organized interface, making it easy for physicians to access and study their education materials. Some apps even include CME trackers that allow physicians to easily monitor their progress in meeting their CME requirements.

The increasingly hectic schedule of an average physician combined with physician’s dependence on mobile devices (81% of physicians use smartphones for business and 56% use tablets) has led to CME providers making their courses mobile friendly. Check out some of the top mobile CME courses and apps below.
