CMA Joule – the app

At JouleTM, we recognize that accessing the high-value products and services that you receive with your membership has to be easy and convenient. For this reason, we have created CMA Joule, an app that gives you mobile access to our most popular products and services.

CMA Joule gives Canadian Medical Association (CMA) members access to:

  • Joule Innovation — submit your application video for the Joule Innovation Program
  • CMAJ — The Canadian Medical Association’s flagship, peer-reviewed general medical journal
  • DynaMed Plus Online— a point-of-care tool that provides daily systematic surveillance of more than 500 journals and updates over 3,200 medical topic summaries
  • POEMs — concise, daily email summaries that provide quick access to the latest clinical studies
  • InfoPratique — a French-only clinical email service that delivers clinical abstracts from scientific research of significance
  • Ask a Librarian — access to expert search assistance, including help with clinical resources and how to formulate a search

Your login connects you to these valuable resources. You can register yourself at using your six-digit CMA ID number. If you need help obtaining your CMA ID number, our Member Services Centre can provide it to you; call us toll free at 888-855-2555.
