BoardVitals, a leading medical education company, announced today that it is now accredited to provide physicians with Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits through its online self-assessment platform. The company has launched CME credentialing for physicians in both Family Medicine and Psychiatry and plans to cover CME for 10 specialties by year end.
BoardVitals makes it easier than ever for MDs and DOs to complete their CME requirements and earn hours online by answering highly detailed questions pertaining to their speciality. In some cases, an entire year's CME requirement can be completed in one sitting by physicians who have a very strong understanding of their specialty. The company offers Category 1 CME credits with a minimum of 40 credit hours per specialty.
“BoardVitals is part of the new generation of online CME that offers an easy to use self-assessment tool that is far more convenient than the in person courses, videos, and conferences that are commonly used," said Dan Lambert, CEO of BoardVitals. “Doctors now have access to mobile, personalized, and customized learning tools in a way that they have never before experienced in a CME context."
BoardVitals offers digital assessment tools, board preparation, and now CME online, bringing together medical content from major sources: top medical publishers, research institutions, and a network of more than 200 individual practitioners.
“Continuing Medical Education ensures that doctors are attuned to new developments within their specialities, which helps provide the highest care to patients," said Andrea Paul MD, chief medical officer of BoardVitals. “The CME landscape is convoluted with fragmented certification options that are often outdated and time consuming. Some physicians have been known to fly cross-country to attend certification conferences, but with online certification reducing training time, these hours can now be spent with patients."
BoardVitals brings together content from major publishers, universities, and top healthcare professionals, creating the largest training ecosystem in medicine. BoardVitals helps physicians prepare for medical board exams, re-certification exams (MOC), and in-service exams offering high-yield content in over 30 specialities.
BoardVitals contributors are experts from top tier academic and practicing institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Duke, and Mt. Sinai helping us create the best content on the market.
Founded in 2013 by Andrea Paul MD (Yale) and Dan Lambert (HBS), BoardVitals is a physician-run company created with the practicing physician and resident in mind.
