CME on a smartphone

There are several ways of getting Continuing Medical Education or CME credit using your smartphone. Allow me to list several ways (this is NOT meant to be a comprehensive list):
  • Mobile CME via Epocrates
  • Skyscape CME STAT
  • UpToDate via mobile web browser (paid subscription required)
  • MedPageToday via mobile web browser
  • ReachMD for Apple iPhone
There are many other sources that are providing CME for mobile devices, so stay tuned. As mobile web browsers become more powerful and allow Flash movies and other multimedia formats, we should be seeing more forms of handheld CME delivered via mobile web browsers. This way, clinicians will get to use almost any type of smartphone to participate in these CME activities. You won't be limited to a specific operating system if you're simply using a mobile web browser.
