Online Continuing Medical Education Sites

  • Excellent coverage
  • Narrow audience
It’s not easy being a physician as medical advances make the headlines of newspapers, weekly. The mountain of information is enormous, and I probably don’t need to get started on the patient load and the fact that physicians almost have to be married to their career. How can a conscientious doctor stay up to date? This is where continuing education comes in. Bernard Sklar’s Online Continuing Medical Education (CME) page is an amazing collection of information on CME, with links to over 275 online CME sites, 15,000 activities, and 25,000 hours of AMA Category I CME credit. Yes, many of these cost for credit (surprise!), but they help physicians to deal with one of the most important things they must do–keep informed on important new medical information. Unfortunately, no one can increase the number of hours in a day.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
