We’ve always been a big fan of Medical Radio, the free iPhone app from the folks over at ReachMD. The app is in our top 7 list of medical applications because of the great utility it provides to medical professionals. We actually reviewed an old version of this application, ReachMD CME awhile back. You can find out more information about this live event on the ReachMD site:
“This represents the first national broadcast of it’s kind for continuing medical education where participants can interact with the world renown faculty that NACCME has lined up for this program,” said Gary Epstein, CEO of ReachMD. “ReachMD is proud to continue to deliver innovation in the Medical Education media space and we expect this new live programming to generate as much enthusiasm as our iPhone application last year.”
This event isn’t a one time thing, and will occur eight times from November 16th to December 15th. The schedule of the live events is listed on their website.
You can participate and ask questions during the live broadcast via phone(888-MD1-REACH), email (CME@ReachMD.com), and twitter(CMEonReachMD). Participation in the event is free, just like the application.
Here is an excerpt of what we wrote in the past about the Medical Radio app by ReachMD:
We thought the ReachMD CME app had promise, but didn’t capitalize on it’s full potential. Needless to say, the Medical Radio app definitely does not disappoint. This app provides an easy way for you to get CME credit by listening to streaming CME education from legitimate health care professionals, and then taking quizzes right through your phone. Imagine getting CME credit while on a train ride or in some waiting line. Imagine no more.
