Online CME Courses

Free online CME

Free online CME courses are usually sponsored by pharmaceutical companies or device manufacturers. In our listings we try to identify the sponsoring organization. As is obvious, these courses usually deal with the specific pharmaceutical or medical device industry sold by the sponsoring company, but does not specifically identify brands. These courses generally meet the qualifying standards for category 1 CME courses.

Another major provider of free CME online courses is Medscape. These courses often take the form of "reports" and "highlights" from major medical meetings. The programs are generally of high quality, and qualify for Category 1 CME credits. A wide variety of medical specialities (everything from Internal Medicine CME to Psychiatry CME and Surgery CME) are covered.

There are also a small number of free CME courses provided by medical schools and training hospitals. More often, though, CME courses provided by these institutions cost about $25/credit hour. For example, Harvard CME provides several online courses and charges between $20 and $50 per credit hour. Compare those against Cleveland Clinic CME courses, as well as courses offering Johns Hopkins CME credits.
