Revitalized Offers Something for Every Medical Learner

Posted by • March 8th, 2018

Lifestyles of medical professionals have changed greatly over the past two decades. Imperatives for pursuing lifelong medical learning have continued to multiply, while time available for doing so has grown increasingly scarce.

All along, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) has been innovating to address this challenge, adding high-quality imagery, video, audio, interactive challenges, and other engaging opportunities that make medical learning mobile-friendly, available 24/7, and capable of fitting into just about any free-time increment. Now, the revitalized makes it easier than ever to find and access all the learning and multimedia content NEJM offers when- and wherever you find yourself with a few free minutes.


Need to earn CME credits for medical licensure or board certification/ recertification? Or, simply wish to test your skills and expand medical knowledge with clinical-case challenges? The Learning section aggregates both for-credit and not-for-credit activities. This includes:

  • NEJM Weekly CME Exams – earn 1 AMA PRA Category CreditTM per successfully completed exam, with three new exams added every week.
  • Interactive Medical Cases – for each successfully completed activity, earn 2 AMA PRA Category CreditsTM and, where applicable, ABIM MOC points.
  • Clinical Decisions, which include polls and comment threads, enabling you to compare your own conclusions and interact with other medical professionals.
  • Interactive Image Challenges and Case Challenges.
  • The latest Clinical Pearls from NEJM Resident 360 – a digital community that helps residents and students with foundational clinical knowledge, career insights, and support.

  • Earning CME and/or ABIM MOC
  • Finding conversations and debate among medical colleagues (look for the speech bubble icon)
  • Participating in polling to compare your own conclusions with those of other NEJM readers (look for the bar-chart icon)
  • Viewing interim analysis of Polling Results by expert NEJM editors

If you are looking for CME related to a specific medical specialty or topic, go directly to site search. Search for relevant keywords; then, from your Search Results page, expand the Filter option and tick the CME box to quickly isolate any available activities related to your search.

Individual NEJM subscribers enjoy their first 20 CME activities free of charge during each annual subscription cycle. Nonsubscribers who register for an account at may purchase access to NEJM CME at $19/activity or $109 for a 10-activity bundle to be used over time.


Just as the new Learning section offers something for every medical learner, a new Multimedia section aggregates all NEJM visual, audio, and video content.

Hopping on a treadmill or elliptical at the gym? Pop in your headphones and head over to the Multimedia section for immediate access to all the latest NEJM audio interviews and audio Clinical Practice articles.

Riding a bus or train to work? The Multimedia section offers a single jumping off point for all the latest NEJM Image Challenges, Images in Clinical Medicine, and Quick Take videos.

Waiting around while your child is at a piano, dance, or sports practice? Make the time valuable and brush up on the latest procedures with NEJM Videos in Clinical Medicine and clinically-oriented articles featuring multimedia components.
