The Medical Quiz Lite app contains questions on general medical knowledge; while the Premium App quizzes cover specialist areas such as therapeutics, cardiology, general internal medicine and general practice.
Premium App users, who can download additional quizzes for £1.49 each, can tweet their scores and add them to their Facebook page. Doctors.net.uk members can also post their scores on a leaderboard on the Doctors.net.uk website.
The medical quiz apps, which can also be downloaded by other healthcare professionals and the public around the world, follow the launch by Doctors.net.uk of a medical news app, and a conference highlights app (exclusively for UK doctors).
Dr Tim Ringrose, CEO of Doctors.net.uk, said: ‘Education is becoming increasingly important to doctors with the introduction of revalidation, and with heavy workloads, busy lifestyles and growing economic pressures, doctors need to find convenient and effective ways to fit Continuing Medical Education (CME) around their schedule.
‘Our new apps answer doctors’ need for bite-sized learning resources that are so quick and accessible they can be completed on an iPhone or iPad within minutes. We have presented these quizzes in a light-hearted way to make learning fun as well as informative.’
