Earning CME/CE/CPD Credit with UpToDate

The volume of medical knowledge is ever-increasing, but the time to keep up with changing and evolving information is not. Studies have shown that researching clinical information in UpToDate helps clinicians stay current with changes in their specialty and recommended treatments. Clinicians can be confident that content in UpToDate has been developed based on documented practice needs and based on evidence based literature.

That’s why UpToDate is recognized and accredited as a continuing education resource by many organizations including colleges, associations, and authorities from around the world.

Clinicians can use the time they already spend researching clinical questions with UpToDate toward continuing professional development requirements at no extra cost, with no additional testing. Integrating UpToDate into an EHR/EMR also streamlines both the clinical workflow and access to CME/CE/CPD.*
