CME Online

To find online CME, try using search engines that allow you to enter a term you want to locate and then add the modifier "AND CME online." Even better, check out medicine-specific sites like Medical Matrix (www.medmatrix.org/), which uses peer reviewers to analyze Web sites and provides links to the best online CME. Finally, the AMA's Web site has a browser that allows physicians to access information on more than 2,000 AMA Physician's Recognition Award activities. The AMA is considering linking to those programs offered online that pass its peer review.

Here is a partial list of CME sites on the Internet recommended by physicians and medical informatics experts:

  • www.ama-assn.org/cgi-bin/cme-redir
    AMA's CME locator is an online database that contains more than 2,000 AMA category 1 educational activities. These activities are either sponsored by credible CME providers, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) or approved by the AMA.

  • www.cmeweb.com/
    This site offers tests approved by a variety of organizations worth 1.5 category 1 credits.

Training Materials Resources

The California Hepatitis Resource Center is identifying materials and programs that can be used by providers to assist them in their understanding of viral hepatitis. One of the most relevant components of providing services, at any level, is to start with a current, accurate, and basic knowledge bank of information. We hope that the components we identify for you to utilize will provide both basic and advanced access to knowledge and will be information that you can use in your daily work with colleagues and consumers.

As an adjunct to the Training Materials section of this resource project, it would be important to utilize this web site on a regular basis for updates – News (on the home page), Email Updates (by providing your email address, you will receive updates directly to your email address), Calendar (programs and events that you may want to physically attend), Resources by disease (other organizations that may be helpful to you), County Resources (map of each county and public health services and contacts, including model programs), and many materials to download as handouts for your support group or practice.

The Resource Center will also make every effort to find programs and materials that will provide CME/CEU credits.

Do you know of other programs or materials? Please let us know….
