Case Challenges: New, free CME activity for AAD members


By Bryan E. Anderson, MD
Chair, AAD Self-Assessment Workgroup

I’m please to introduce the Academy’s newest member benefit—the AAD’s Case Challenges, a free online activity that allows members to earn CMEs monthly. 

Case Challenges, developed under the direction of the AAD’s Self-Assessment Workgroup, are designed to assess your knowledge of the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various dermatologic conditions. The interactive format makes it easy for members to quickly test their knowledge and earn CMEs.

Each Case Challenge is certified for .50 AMA PRA CAT 1TM Credits. In addition, ABD Diplomates are able to earn Self-Assessment MOC credits for completing each case challenge. Credits will vary depending on the number of questions in each Case Challenge.

You can find the first Case Challenge in the Online Learning Center (OLC). (Search for "Case Challenge" on the OLC landing page.) New Case Challenges will be delivered on the 4th Thursday of each month in the AAD’s Question of the Week email.
