AMA Announces New Online Education Hub to Support Lifelong Learning, Licensure and Certification Needs of Physicians and Health Care Professionals


 

The American Medical Association (AMA) today announced its new online education portal offering physicians and other health care professionals a streamlined way to find, earn, track and report continuing medical education (CME) and other education. Designed to support personalized lifelong learning, licensure and certification needs for physicians and their care teams, the new AMA Ed HubTM covers a wide variety of topics and specialties in one centralized online location--helping physicians stay current in their practice of medicine while reducing the administrative burdens associated with tracking and reporting learning.

"The AMA is committed to making medical education easy to access across a physician's lifetime. By providing physicians with impactful educational experiences in one, centralized location, they will be able to easily find education that fits their practice needs and ultimately leads to better health outcomes for patients," said AMA President Barbara L. McAneny, M.D. "Physicians are committed to lifelong learning to continually improve patient care. We also know that physicians are time pressed, so we want to make learning and the process of obtaining credits for that learning as effective and as streamlined as possible."

The AMA Ed Hub features activities on clinical and interdisciplinary topics from a variety of trusted sources, including the CME activities from the JAMA Network's JN Learning™, AMA STEPs Forward™, and the American College of Radiology (ACR)--the AMA Ed Hub's first medical specialty society content partner to offer education on the platform. Activities cover important topics such as opioids prescribing education, firearm safety, precision medicine, ethics references as well as a wide range of trending clinical content.

A selection of free ACR content is being hosted on the AMA Ed Hub and is now accessible to all learners, regardless of AMA and ACR membership status, as part of the AMA and ACR's collective mission to educate physicians and health care teams. Learners can find, take and claim credit for these ACR activities directly through the new platform, as well as download a branded ACR CME certificate upon completion. All completed activities will also be tracked and appear in the learner's AMA Ed Hub transcript.

"The ACR is proud to share a selected portion of our free educational opportunities with physicians of all specialties through the AMA Ed Hub. These include educational offerings and trainings regarding physician leadership, data science, research and clinical practice management. I strongly encourage physicians to take advantage of this exciting new educational opportunity," said American College of Radiology Chief Executive Officer William T. Thorwarth, M.D., FACR.

The AMA is also working toward partnering with other organizations to offer additional sources of educational content on the platform.

The AMA Ed Hub automatically reports education credits earned through the platform directly to select medical licensing boards. Physicians who are board certified with the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Board of Pediatrics or licensed in Tennessee or North Carolina will be the first to experience automatic credit reporting through the platform. The AMA plans to expand these capabilities to additional specialty and state boards.

All educational activities featured on the AMA Ed Hub can be easily accessed digitally and at any time on desktop computers, tablets/laptops, and mobile phones at edhub.ama-assn.org.
