LipidCME is a free educational Web site for the cardiology, endocrinology and primary care physician communities. There is no cost for you to access LipidCME or to obtain CME credits. The Web site does not include any product advertisements.

LipidCME is constantly updated and expanded to include the most accurate and relevant information available for cardiologists, endocrinologists and primary care physicians. We have recruited leading experts to serve as faculty contributors. Before any new material is posted on LipidCME, it is thoroughly reviewed by our Medical Director.

For each CME activity (article, lecture, video or clinical case) you select, you will be taken directly to the CME Information, which will tell you about the activity topics and authors, relevant financial relationships, learning objectives and credit designation.

Upon review of the CME information, you will be directed to the pretest. Upon completion of the pretest, you will proceed to the activity content, where you will be able to read, watch or listen to the activity.

After review of the activity content, you will be directed to the posttest. If a passing score is achieved on the posttest, you will continue on to an evaluation of the activity and finally, you will be directed to your certificate.

Your certificate will also appear in your “My CME” section of the site for future referral.

International Users: If your country recognizes United States-approved AMA PRA Catergory 1 Credit(s)TM as valid credits in medical education, then the credits you can earn on LipidCME can be applied to your country's continuing medical education program.
