Objective: The objective of this study is to present updated trends, gaps and focus areas of e-learning in the field of Continuing Medical Education (CME) as reported in the literature. A total of 59 journal paper published between 2003 and [June] 2013 were reviewed from selected databases. The results show that there is a growing trend of using e-learning for CME. The e-learning interventions range from using online/web-based training modules to mobile learning using a wide range of tools and technologies, which include learning management systems, smart mobile applications, video imaging, virtual patients and video conferencing. Even though majority of reported studies are from the countries that are generally perceived as technologically advanced countries, a few studies from developing countries have also been reported
indicating a growing interest in the field.
