Through a partnership with Medscape, an online network of medical content for physicians and other health professionals, hematologists can earn CME credits by testing their comprehension of articles published in ASH's widely-cited biomedical journal Blood.

The first Blood article to offer CME credit will be included in the January 28 issue, both in print and online. Blood is published weekly, and one CME article will appear in the journal in the fourth week of every month. By completing a set of study questions after reading the selected article, physicians will have a convenient and effective way of earning credits to maintain board certification, enhancing their knowledge on the subject matter, and improving the care they provide to patients.

A maximum of 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit can be earned through the January 28 article, and future articles may offer even more credit. There is no charge to participants to earn CME credits through this program.
