CME from UpToDate

Have you earned the required CME and MOC for recertification?

We need at 100 CME credits every 2 years. The UpToDate is the easiest way to get CME on the go. We invariably look up for more info while working and why not get CME at the same time? Most hospitals provide UpToDate freely in our hospital computers. We just need to logout from hospital account and log into our personal account so that CME can accumulate in our accounts.

Here I made an attempt to save your time by searching for most common topics in hospital medicine and listing them here so that you can just click on them and read when you have a free minute.

Good thing is UpToDate can submit MOC to ABIM for you.

The following are the most important cases that we see in hospital medicine.
