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.

Half the dues, all the AMA benefits!

AMA membership offers unique access to savings and resources tailored to enrich the personal and professional lives of physicians, residents and medical students.

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.
