Top 6 Free Video CME


There is a plethora of continuing medical education (CME) activities out there, with thousands of educators providing tens of thousands of courses, articles, and conferences every year.  However, in this sea of CME, there is a paucity of quality, video CME activities.  Because people are often better learners when more senses are stimulated, video CME is a great way to learn and retain information.  With audio-visual learning, people are more likely to remember things – rather than reading articles or going through slides.  While CME requirements don’t exactly correspond to better healthcare outcomes, the overall mission of CME is to ensure that healthcare practitioners (such as yourself) are constantly learning and improving.  With video CME, there’s a better chance of retaining information – why not take it?


Video CME is also very convenient for those with hectic schedules.  The convenience aspect is important, because the large CME conferences also utilize audio-visual learning, but can be a pain to attend.  With video CME, if you want to take a short break, you can resume where you left off without the fear of possibly missing out on some important information.  When you complete the CME, you are sent a certificate via email, which is much more expedient than being mailed certificates to your office or home.  This saves you the time of hunting down certificates for reporting your CE credits – a process which can be eliminated completely if you sign up for CE App’s premium CE certificate tracking service.


So while Netflix’s Stranger Things is deserving of a binge watch, sprinkle in the occasional study break – in this case, a break where you study – and learn in an easy, convenient and most importantly, effective way.
