PRN Continuing Medical Education

PRN is pleased to offer Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. We understand there are many barriers that prevent medical trainees and practicing clinicians from getting the CME they need. Staying up to date on the latest pediatric research often means having to pay for a journal subscription or even your CME certificate and then spend the time to complete the activity. PRN makes it easier to stay on top of the latest evidence-based medicine by curating high-quality, recent research articles, from many different subspecialties in pediatrics, and providing summaries – designed to be read in 2 minutes or less - for free. Summaries are paired with data visuals to help learners get comfortable with reading charts and/or graphs and get familiar with different research methods as a way to increase research literacy with easy-to-understand language that they can digest and then apply in their training, practice, and in their next encounters with published research.
