Call for Volunteers - Assist in Finishing the StatPearls Project

Dear Medical Educators:

Twenty years ago, we worked together to create eMedicine© a free online library used by millions of health professionals. Recently, the founders of eMedicine© began StatPearls, a new, international collaboration to further improve medical education.

We are writing to invite you to join us in finishing the StatPearls project. To date, more than five thousand health professionals are completing a peer-reviewed PubMed (National Library of Medicine) indexed database of 17,000 summary articles and 150,000 multiple choice questions with four teaching points, pictures, or a video classified to each specialty area of medicine, surgery, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, allied health, and basic science. Questions and articles are selected by editors-in-chief for use by each specialty. The completed learning management system allows:

  • Publication of updatable peer-reviewed, books, apps, and online continuing education indexed in PubMed for GME scholarly credit.
  • Users to customize, assign, score, and track web-based or printable assessments with the option to modify existing questions or develop private or shared question banks.
  • Users have free access to the online database, and unlimited CME/CE will only be $24.95 a year.
  • Authors and editors have free access, free CME/CE for updating content annually, and a free eBook.

Please consider a brief time commitment to this academic project. When you go to, you will see how easy it is to write, edit, and peer review content. Together we can provide free online access and affordable continuing medical education.

Take the Survey: ABMS Seeks Feedback on Continuing Board Certification

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is currently working on an initiative for the future state of physician certification. Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future is a collaborative effort to assess the current state of continuing board certification, and to envision a framework that is relevant and meaningful to physicians, patients, hospitals and health systems.

This ‘Vision Initiative’ is led by a Commission comprised of a diverse group of physicians, professional medical organizations, national specialty and state medical societies, hospitals and health systems, educators, patients, and the general public. Today, the Commission is seeking feedback from as broad an audience as possible regarding the current and future state of continuing board certification and would like your input.

ABMS is encouraging all stakeholders in healthcare today to participate in this process, as it provides them an opportunity for their voice to be heard. The survey will remain open until May 11th and can be accessed here:

ABMS greatly values your comments and support.
