MedEdPORTAL: a resource for CME providers, faculty, clinician-learners, many
MedEdPORTAL (Providing Online Resources to Advance Learning in Medical
Education) is a free publication venue developed by the AAMC to support
educators and learners as they create and use online teaching materials,
assessment tools and faculty development resources.
Publications in MedEdPORTAL include tutorials, virtual patients, cases, lab
manuals, assessment instruments, faculty development materials covering from
undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical and dental education - and
each of them can meet CME and quality improvement goals. MedEdPORTAL has
sizable potential for CME providers, teachers, quality managers and others:
1) as a source of material for presentations; 2) as an opportunity to publish
high quality, peer reviewed materials developed in CME settings; 3) as a
possible revenue source for on-line materials; and 4) as a peer reviewed
scholarly contribution suitable to support promotion and tenure decisions.

CME faculty training on commercial support:
The National Faculty Education Initiative was launched in October 2008 by the Alliance for CME (Alliance) and Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME), in collaboration with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The goal of the Initiative is to help medical education faculty understand the differences between certified CME activities and commercial marketing/promotional programs.
The online educational activity is available to physician, nursing and pharmacy faculty at http://www.nfeinitiative.org/.
Get the Facts!
The Get the Facts! Campaign is a national effort to disseminate factual information on
issues that are important and relevant to the CME community.
