About Continuing Medical Education
The $2.65 billion dollar continuing medical education (CME) industry traditionally consisted of educational activities that maintained, developed or increased the clinical knowledge of physicians use in providing care for their patients. Traditional activities included live events, written publications, and audio and video recordings. But studies demonstrate these methods to be ineffective, and that physicians are challenged to translate retained knowledge into practice.
However, K2P's approach addresses both knowledge and performance and swaps out monolithic podium lectures for learner-centric learning.
Providing customized information, K2P's proprietary online system was designed to fit into physicians' demanding schedules, and to match each physician's unique practice needs. Using a self-assessment module, physicians can identify knowledge and practice gaps, stay current, and develop/maintain mastery across their core competencies.
