With a new enhancement, clinicians can now earn AMA PRA Category 1TM CME credits by simply reading the clinical content for 150+ calculators. The app will keep track of the CME credits earned in a personal dashboard, where users can also redeem credits for certificates and access their receipts for easy documentation. In order to redeem CME credits, users will need to sign up for a paid CME plan.
Unique features, ideal for the busy practicing clinician:
• Works offline and in limited connection settings. (CME tracking requires a connection.)
• Fast and easy search and filter to discover new calculators.
• Customizable lists for quick access: favorites, recently used, your specialty.
• Auto-syncing between the website and app.
• Quick toggle between US and SI units.
• Error warnings and normal values to help avoid mistakes and improper inputs.
Our exclusive “MDCalc Method” for selecting tools - including in-depth appraisal and validation of evidence AND clinical relevance - results in only the highest-quality tools to help you make better decisions and be more efficient in your workflow. And our network of academic and practicing physician experts create easy-to-digest content to reinforce decision making and support training:
• Insights and advice from the EBM creators (e.g. Dr. Phil Wells’ on the Wells’ Criteria).
• Expert content by specialists on use cases, pearls & pitfalls, results interpretation and more.
• Synopses of the evidence from the original and validation research.
From iMedicalApps in 2016: “The evidence based medicine (EBM) components of the medical app are what really set MDCalc apart from its peers... The MDCalc app gives brief summaries of the critical studies concerning the medical calculator, links to the studies on PubMed as well as “pearls/pitfalls”, “next steps” and expert commentary from the authors of the calculators.” - iMedicalApps “MDCalc app, the best online medical calculator is now an app”

I was looking for Sepsis criteria after my daughter’s 2nd bout. That’s when I found MDcalc. I have used it to convince medical pros to do Sepsis work ups, because sadly, awareness is still lacking. Thanks to MDcalc and early treatment, my daughter has survived Sepsis 6 times now.
Third year medical student
I love this app. Consistently makes me look smarter than I actually am. Comfortable using it at the bedside with patients as long as I explain what I am doing to the patient. Must have for med students, great tool.
Great for prehospital/retrieval
I love MDCalc. In the prehospital arena we do not have nearly enough diagnostic capabilities. This helps me form an idea of how sick a patient is on scene with any information available. As always in the prehospital arena, make sure to follow your MD’s protocols and charting policies..
