Chances are you and your staff have guided residents, nurses, and physicians trying to carve out time to earn Continuation Education (CME/CE) credits to maintain their license to practice or to attain board certification. Wolters Kluwer now offers a solution that provides easy access—via mobile, tablet, or desktop—via a single point of entry to thousands of CE credits in a variety of fields.

1,000s of AudioDigest Lectures and Board Review Sessions

Listening to lectures—and, ideally, absorbing the material!—is a great way to earn CE. Wolters Kluwer’s Ovid® platform makes available more than 5,000 accredited audio files of clinical best practice lectures and board exam review sessions covering topics in 16 disciplines across primary care, surgery, and specialty areas like neurology and psychology. In total, more than 1.3 million CE/CME credits can be earned annually from these lectures.

Lectures are delivered by experts in their field, and organized and curated regularly by experienced medical editors. Users can download any audio file onto a unique media player that organizes lectures and reviews into favorites, makes them searchable by topic and keyword, and synchronizes them across other devices. That means seamless connectivity to a valuable learning event no matter where you are. To give you a better taste of how the product works, check out this demo:
