The Center for Biomedical Continuing Education (CBCE) recently launched a continuing medical education (CME) oncology application for the iPhone that lets a physician quickly access clinical news, treatment updates, and conference highlights. The free application pulls in accredited content from the CBCE and allows a medical provider to take quizzes and earn CME credits on the go. Unlike ReachMD, which has a similar application, the CBBE app supports more than just audio – it can handle text, slides, and video as well.
From the CBCE press release:
Through the leveraging of Apple mobile technology, the CBCE CME app allows for fully accredited treatment updates, conference highlights, and CME tests to be used by healthcare professionals in a convenient format. Content includes coverage of both solid tumors and hematologic malignancies.
This continually updated application draws from select CME content found on www.thecbce.com. CME programs will be available in a variety of media formats, including podcasts, Webcasts, slides, and text. This application takes advantage of the best functionality these devices have to offer and contains the following features:
Free content and application Fully accredited CME programs and posttests Available on demand, 24/7, wherever Wi-Fi or 3G networks are accessible Easy-to-use, multimedia CME Automatic program updates Bookmarks to quickly return to designated programs Keyword search for relevant, easy-to-find CME programs
