Test your knowledge with clinical challenges from JAMA Network

Timothy M. Smith , Contributing News Writer

Online learning opportunities, including continuing medical education (CME), are more valuable than ever. They’re also more accessible than ever.

JN Learning™, the CME arm of the JAMA Network™, enables users to browse the JAMA Network catalogue of over 5,000 online resources by any medical topic. A filter then lets users locate more than 1,700 relevant online CME opportunities.

Advancing public health

The AMA leads the charge on public health. Our members are the frontline of patient care, expanding access to care for underserved patients and developing key prevention strategies.

The AMA has added lessons for many of the most common specialty health topics. Each provides a brief assessment by way of an online series of lessons.

Test your knowledge

CME from the JAMA Network enables you to earn AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credit™ from a source you trust. Education from JN Learning includes clinical challenges in these areas.

Dermatology: This category helps learners correctly diagnose and treat unusual presentations of skin cancer, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, skin lymphomas, cutaneous drug reactions and more. For example, can you diagnose progressive skin depressions in a child’s neck?

Infectious disease: Can you correctly diagnose and treat unusual presentations of rat bite fever? How about lyme disease? Or syphilis? What do you make of this headache, confusion, and somnolence in a 27-year-old woman?

Can you diagnose stroke-like episodes in a patient with chronic gait abnormalities?

Oncology: This series helps learners correctly diagnose and treat unusual presentations of acute myeloid leukemia, skin and Burkitt lymphoma, lung cancer and other conditions. One of the cases explores a typical kidney tumor with atypical presentation.

Ophthalmology: Covers cases of blurry vision, visual impairment, edema and headaches, including a rare case of bilateral orbital masses.

Otolaryngology: Has lessons in correctly diagnosing and treating cases of dysphagia, vestibular dysfunction, vasculitis and more. Can you diagnose this hoarseness and stridor following stem cell transplant?

Pediatrics: This series focuses on diagnosing and treating unusual congenital defects, pediatric cancers and consequences of antenatal exposures. Check your knowledge against this case of an enlarging parotid mass in a nine-year-old boy.

Radiology: Tests learners’ knowledge of unusual findings on radiographs, CT and MR scans and PET scans, like this case of chronic neck pain after oromandibular reconstruction.
