An online "university" that educates physicians and provides continuing medical education (CME) credits through its Web site sounds like a neat idea. According to HealthStream, its online review programs are "intended for primary care and other non-specialist practitioners." The courses of study are a portion of a larger work, Med-Challenger, sold on CD-ROM.
The Course Catalog at the site lists the following subjects: cardiology and hypertension, diagnostic imaging, emergency medicine, family practice, internal medicine, medical periodicals and news, obstetrics-gynecology, pediatrics, and urology. Within broad subjects are many subcategories, and within subcategories many course topics. I chose the neurology section of internal medicine for this review.
