Through Eskind’s subscription to UpToDate, VUMC users can both access UpToDate content through StarPanel and earn CME credits at the same time.
To do so, the first time you access UpToDate through StarPanel, you’ll need to establish a username and password in order to track your CME credits. This is not your vunet ID and password – it’s an additional login you’ll need to set up so UptoDate can track your credits.
1. To get to UpToDate in Starpanel, first click the “Inf. Resources” (information resources) link:
2. In the expanded Information Resources menu, find UpToDate and click on it.
3. When you click on UpToDate, a new browser window or tab for UpToDate will open, which will ask you to either register or log in. You can set up your user account for tracking CME, or use the “skip this for now” option if you’re not ready to start tracking CME credits for reading UpToDate topics.
More information on earning, tracking, and redeeming credits is available from http://www.uptodate.com/online/about/cme_home.html, including answers to frequently asked questions.
