The MedPage Today app made our top 10 10 free medical apps list for the iPhone some time ago. Now the app is customized for the iPad. This has definitely been a long time coming – MedPage Today’s articles and CME sessions are a natural fit for the iPad’s large screen. On another note, MedPage Today has also recently released an Android version of their popular app.
Here is a blurb about what we had to say about the iPhone version of the app in a previous review:
The ability to attain CME credits from the palm of your hand is definitely a huge service this application provides, but I feel the ability to get current medical news is just as beneficial. Even if you aren’t interested in getting CME credits, the CME articles are extremely informative and concise. You can read and listen to them on the go in order to stay up to date with hot button topics related to medicine. The app is useful for not only providers, but medical students and residents as well and would definitely be helpful in the wards when getting grilled by attendings on updated medical guidelines.
