As a busy practicing endocrinologist, and program director of the endocrinology and metabolism fellowship at Eastern Virginia Medical School, I know how challenging it can be to find time to prepare for board certification, recertification, or continuing education credits. That’s why I’m excited to tell you about the newest edition of AACE’s Self-Assessment Program (ASAP)! ASAP was developed by physicians for physicians. It’s an all-inclusive tool designed to prepare you for Board Review Study and continuing education.
The 2021 ASAP product has been in development for over a year under the helm of our Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Elias Siraj, and his team of six section editors. ASAP comprehensively covers the content laid out by the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Certification Examination Blueprint from the American Board of Internal Medicine, available here.
Check out the new 2021 ASAP features:
The case-based question format on ASAP is similar to the ABIM Endocrine Board Examination, and has gone through a rigorous multi-step peer review process with over 30 trained-item writers and content experts to develop 80 key questions. Questions are organized by topic and cover all areas of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism.
Over 30 CME/MOC Hours
ASAP will help you improve your general endocrine knowledge while receiving over 30 Continuing Medical Education and Maintenance of Certification credit hours. It’s a convenient opportunity for you to refine your skills and improve overall patient care by staying up to date with the latest research and clinical developments.
Flexibility to answer questions in two modes:
Learn Mode: which allows test-takers to see detailed information immediately after answering a question.
Exam Mode: which simulates an exam setting and no feedback will be given until all questions are submitted and scored.
You can switch between modes without losing progress and CME/MOC credit is available regardless of the mode chosen.
ASAP provides a full competency diagnosis of your test data including:
Benchmark data to see how your score compares to others
A list of missed questions with rationales
Links to missed questions for review
After completing the self-assessment questions and claiming credit, you have unlimited access to create your own customized practice tests. You can shuffle the questions, add a timer, create a practice exam using just the missed questions or a specific topic area. A diagnosis report will be created after your customized report to help you identify any knowledge gaps.
