Abstract

Continuing medical education (CME) is essential for medical practitioners to update their knowledge and skills periodically to provide clinical care in keeping with the evidence available. Traditional methods of CME such as workshops, conferences, and seminars are helpful to bridge the gaps in practice. With advancing echnologies, online format is used to deliver CME with appropriate modifications. Although there are distinct advantages of online CME in regards to wider reach and flexibility, there are certain drawbacks beyond just technological limitations. Interactivity using ingenious ideas may be required to motivate and engage learners during online CME.
