Medical specialists need an easy and affordable way to level up their competency, staying aware of the latest trends and innovations in medicine to provide better service to their patients. An eLearning platform for continuing education of medical specialists allows them to acquire new knowledge and earn the necessary CME credits.
We created a platform for online education that has been successfully functioning since 2012, fulfilling the main aim of continuing education for doctors.

Our Client is a Continuing Medical Education (CME) provider, founder of ExchangeCME eLearning platform for doctors. This is a government-sponsored project, so all trainings and certification for physicians are free of charge.
CME for physicians is regulated by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). The aim of CME is to increase medical specialists’ competency level, cover knowledge gaps, present innovations and trends that should ultimately improve the quality of care for patients.
In many states in the US, medical specialists must undergo Continuing Medical Education courses and earn a certain amount of credits every year to keep their licenses.
However, there is no need to tell how busy doctors are. CME courses can be a real burden on top of already demanding work and life activities. That is why taking CME courses online has become a lifesaver for many.
We developed a web portal for continuing medical education that enables personalized online and offline learning and certification for medical specialists.
The platform’s features include:
Online activities for each medical topic allow users to get knowledge and certification in their respective fields. To earn credits and certificates, users need to pass the modules step-by-step. Only after watching the theory block can the user start the test. In case of mistakes, the user is sent back to the theory and is not allowed to take the test untill ending up with the theoretical part. The steps are:
02 The activity itself (video or presentation)
Registration for live events
Users can view the list of live events and register for them from the platform.
For each event they receive credits. After registration, events are added to the user’s profile with the information about CME credits for each event.
Resources for additional learning
These are presentation slides, linked resources, suggested reading, clinical interactive guidelines, eBooks, and more. Everything is in one place and easily available.
Here all user information is stored, including all courses, scheduled live events, earned credits and certificates. With each passed course the user can print a certificate.
This is where admins can easily upload content and manage the platform. This includes user management, adding new activities, scheduling events in the event calendar, creating and editing questionnaires, and much more.
Reports to track the progress
Admins and course authors can track the course statistics to see which courses are popular, their completion rates, and student scores. They can also drill down to find out the parts of courses that students find the most challenging.
In addition to that, there is also an opportunity to track sign-ups to live events as well as collect statistics from polls and surveys on the platform.
“Follow up” newsletters
The system sends follow-up emails with a links to the tests to check the results of a course passed in some period after the first test. This allows the user to compare the results and identify the effectiveness of education.
