Doctors.net.uk launches medical quiz apps to satiate demand for learning “on the go”

Offers bite-sized learning resources that can be accessed anywhere, anytime

Doctors and other healthcare professionals can now test their medical knowledge on the go following the launch of two educational quiz apps by Doctors.net.uk – the UK's largest and most active online network of doctors.

The Medical Quiz Lite, which can be downloaded free of charge via iTunes, and the Premium App, which costs £1.49, have been launched to meet demand from doctors for bite-sized learning resources that can be accessed anywhere, anytime. 

The new apps, which are so quick and accessible they can be completed on an iPhone or iPad within minutes, will help doctors fulfil their need to fit continuing medical education (CME) around their heavy workloads, busy lifestyles and growing economic pressures: A need that is becoming ever more important following the introduction of revalidation and their need to provide evidence of learning activities.

The Medical Quiz Lite app contains three sets of 10 questions on general clinical knowledge; while the Premium App quizzes have 20 questions each on specialist areas including therapeutics, cardiology, general internal medicine and general practice.

The medical quiz apps, which are presented in a quick and easy to digest style, can also be downloaded by other healthcare professionals and the public, around the world. They follow the launch by Doctors.net.uk of a medical news app, and a conference highlights app (exclusively for UK doctors).

These apps have been launched in response to the growing popularity of mobile devices among medical professionals, who now have unprecedented access to online resources at work, with statistics showing that 80 per cent of UK doctors now own a smartphone and 31 per cent an iPad.

Statistics from Doctors.net.uk during 2012 show that GPs are the group most likely to access the network via a mobile device, followed by general surgeons. The iPhone continues to be the most popular mobile device used to access the Doctors.net.uk network with a 128 per cent growth in the number of web sessions generated by iPhones in 2012 compared to 2011.
