Figure 1 and MedChi Offer Innovative Online Continuing Medical Education: Credits for Reviewing Medical Cases
July 27, 2022

Figure 1 and MedChi, the Maryland State Medical Society, are excited to announce an innovative collaboration offering the opportunity for U.S. physicians to acquire free continuing medical education (CME) credits for reviewing medical cases on Figure 1’s safe and secure platform.

With this new CME program, U.S. physicians can earn 0.25 CME credits for each medical case browsed on Figure 1, after answering three simple questions. All user-generated cases are eligible for credits, the CME credits are accredited by MedChi, and there is no limit to the number of cases physicians can review to get credits. Given that Figure 1 has over 100,000 cases, that means there are over 25,000 potential CME credits available.

This feature is only available to U.S. physicians, who will see a button above every case that says, “Get CME Credits.” By clicking on that button, U.S. physicians on Figure 1 will be asked to answer three questions about how and why reviewing this case will be helpful to their practice. Afterward, members will be able to immediately download a certificate. It’s as easy as that.

Frank Berry, the Director of MedChi’s Department of Continuing Professional Development, states: “The ability for physicians to earn CME micro-learning credits by reviewing cases on Figure 1 is an evolution of our collaboration on informing and educating healthcare professionals. Now, physicians can learn on the fly, anywhere and on any device (iOS, Android, web browser). What’s more, physicians can search by specialty or symptom, and hand-craft the cases they learn about for a truly customized CME experience.”

“Our mission is to democratize medical knowledge and improve the future of healthcare,” said Josh Wildstein, CEO of Figure 1. “Education is a core aspect of these goals. By providing free CME credits to U.S. physicians through our easy to access, always-available platform, Figure 1 allows physicians to stay tapped into the newest, best information on the cases that matter to them — enabling better learning, diagnosis, and patient outcomes.”
