Improved CME search capability on AAFP website
The AAFP released a newly improved CME search function on the AAFP website. New features include the ability for visitors to search by keyword, topic, location, format, course date, provider and number of credits. CME produced by AAFP chapters is highlighted to stand out from CME produced by non-AAFP providers. Additionally, the two most relevant chapter CME activities related to a user's search parameters are priority ranked before non-AAFP providers. The new site can be viewed at this link. The newly revised search page should provide members and nonmembers an easier, more intuitive search experience. More
