Can other people use my NEJM Knowledge+ product?

We strongly recommend that you do not share your NEJM Knowledge+ account information with anyone.

Additionally, the CME credits (and, where offered, MOC points) you earn are associated with your account only and cannot be transferred to others.

Are my data secure?

As an individual purchaser, your progress and performance data are yours alone. We have a 100% threshold for performance to earn CME credits and MOC points, and we give you multiple tries to get each question correct. All that your CME transcript or submission to the ABIM or ABP indicates are the questions you’ve answered correctly.
