Surgical Education and Self-Assessment Program (SESAP®)15
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education presents the 15th edition of the Surgical Education and Self-Assessment Program (SESAP®). SESAP 15 helps surgeons acquire and apply new knowledge, as well as reaffirm existing knowledge, in a commitment to lifelong learning.
The new edition consists of 830 newly constructed, problem-based, multiple-choice questions. Comprehensive critiques provide evidence-based explanations regarding all the answer choices, as well as supporting references from the current literature. The questions cover all of the 15 major content areas of general surgery, consistent with the American Board of Surgery (ABS) outline for topics addressed in ABS examinations. In addition, SESAP is a valuable self-assessment tool and is recognized by the ABS as a resource that can be used to help fulfill Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2 requirements.
A total of 90 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be earned—more credits than with past SESAP editions. Those interested in earning CME credit must use an electronic version of SESAP 15. CME formats include CME Web or CME CD-ROM, and either format can be combined with a supplemental print copy (the two-volume syllabus). Learn more about CME information and minimum system requirements for using SESAP.
Participants who do not want CME credit have the following options: NonCME Web, NonCME CD-ROM, or print versions. The print version cannot be used for CME; it includes a NonCME CD-ROM, the two-volume syllabus, self-assessment book, and the self-scoring booklet.
