Now, more than ever, it’s important to have access to online study tools that help you earn CME, update your knowledge, follow the most recent guidelines, and study for your board exams.
Why should you take your board review plan digital?
More and more, board certification requirements are taking place online, and it’s likely that organizations like ABIM and ABP will put even more emphasis on taking their testing and MOC requirements digital.
What is CME online?
Since there is a bigger emphasis on taking testing requirements online, it makes sense for doctors to start thinking about taking their MOC activities online, too. Online CME resources are here to help you gain new clinical knowledge, and you can do it while you’re at home. You don’t have to wait for the product to be delivered to you, and the format is similar to the exam you’re taking. Then you can submit for your CME credits and MOC points online as well.
When you study with digital tools, you have the added benefit of taking them with you wherever you go—they’re accessible 24/7. You can add 5 minutes of reading to the end of your scheduled lunch break, watch videos while you cook dinner, or pop in Audio Pearls while you go for a run.
With new research about how the brain works (and the optimal way to study!), we know that you can multitask while studying—as long as the task is pretty mindless. This helps you free up a ton of time in your schedule—especially during a year you need to take the boards.
How to get CME credits online

It's probably already out in the digital universe, and just a matter of finding the right one for you! We create board review materials across many formats to help you build your study plan. Plus, you can get, earn, and claim CME credits online with each of these options.
