UpToDate

Description

UpToDate is an electronic learning tool that provides current, authoritative, and clinically focused information available on 10,000+ topics covering 22+ medical specialties. We integrate the best evidence with clinical experience to produce practical and detailed topics to answer physicians’ questions as they provide medical care. This resource may be accessed at the point of care or used for in-depth individualized study. Each clinician uses the resource to design the optimal approach to answer questions according to his/her learning needs.

Diplomate Engagement

Physicians conducting structured searches on clinical topics may claim a half (0.5) AMA PRA Category 1 Credit for documented completion (either at the point of care or later) of the three-step learning cycle, which is as follows:

  1. Review the original clinical question
  2. Identify the relevant sources from those consulted
  3. Describe the application of findings to practice

For each month for which you want to earn credit, you must complete the credit log by selecting options that describe the application of your findings to practice. Diplomates may view and complete monthly credit logs at any time, either prior to or during the process of submitting credits.
