Free CME Credit for MD Consult and First Consult Users

What: Free CME Credits
Where: Via MD Consult or First Consult product use
How: Do a search on a clinical question topic and then click the button to request CME

Elsevier, a major publisher, has teamed up with the Cleveland Clinic to bring free CME credit opportunities to MD Consult and First Consult product users. HSLS currently subscribes to both products, so our users at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC are eligible.

A unique feature of this CME opportunity is its availability at the point-of-care, just one click away. The CME, typically 0.5 credit per topic search, is accredited by the AACME and qualifies as AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
