The goal of the Journal Watch Online CME Program is to provide
physicians with expedient, quality continuing medical education.
The educational objectives of the Journal Watch Online CME Program
are to encourage participants to increase their knowledge of important
advances in all fields of medicine. By providing a surveillance of current
medical journals, the program stimulates physicians to read the original
articles in areas that are applicable to their practice. In addition,
this program is designed to help physicians apply gained knowledge to
the care and treatment of patients.
This program is designed for physicians and other clinicians who provide
patient care; who wish to advance their current knowledge of clinical
medicine; and who wish to keep abreast of advances in medical research.
