Continuing Medical Education (CME) Resources

The Library subscribes to many resources that offer free or substantially discounted CME/CE

Available CME by Profession

ATSM Library offers several subscription resources that can provide free CME/CE/MOC credit to ATSU faculty and students. Note: Most professions only permit a percentage of credit to come from such activities, so be sure to consult their requirements.

This chart covers the most common specialties of interest to the ATSU community, but many of these resources also provide credit for additional specialties, or provide types of credits that may be accepted by additional accrediting bodies on request. 

See the links to the left for more detailed information about each resource's CME/CE/MOC offerings.
