Poll: MDs open to more eCME use

A survey of 971 physicians showed that, while most (84%) said they would prefer to take CME training online, only 6.4% actually participate in virtual training or any type of virtual event very often.

Also in the study, conducted by online events producer ON24 and interactive firm MedData Group, 75.5% of doctors said they had observed an increase in the number of such virtual events, and nearly all respondents (96.1%) said they see benefits to the medium, namely convenience.
