Doximity Offering Convenient Education Platform for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners

Clinicians Now Earn Free Continuing Medical Education Credit While Keeping Up-to-Date on Latest Medical News

San Francisco, Calif., May 26, 2016 -- Doximity, the leading network for healthcare professionals, announced today free continuing medical education (CME/CE) credits for PAs and nurse practitioners.

Even after a landmark clinical trial, it takes an estimated 17 years for new evidence-based findings to be adopted into routine patient care — a delay poised to worsen as medical professionals struggle to follow thousands of research studies despite worsening clinical workloads.

To reduce this knowledge gap, Doximity curates the most important and relevant medical news, personalized to each member's clinical and professional interests. PAs and nurse practitioners now earn Category 1 CME/CE credits as they read, without fees, paperwork or quizzes.

“Our goal is to help health professionals stay current on cutting-edge research in their areas of practice,” said Dr. Peter Alperin, VP of Connectivity Solutions at Doximity. “Saving them time and money in the process by offering free continuing education credit is an added bonus for our members.”

PAs and nurse practitioners interested in joining the network can claim their profile at www.doximity.com, or download mobile app for Apple or Android devices.
