ChangeCME is a free online tool and portfolio for physicians and other health professionals. ChangeCME enables you to track what you learn in lectures, seminars, podcasts, rounds (we could go on), to change your practice and improve patient care. ChangeCME is also about communities of practice and learning. We believe that it will change the way you view continuing medical and health professional education and the way you learn.
We are physicians, education geeks and creative souls who are looking to improve how physicians and other health professionals learn. The truth is we have been utilizing paper “commitment to change” forms for years and wanted to develop an innovative online electronic version. From this idea came ChangeCME.
