The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians, in conjunction with the Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin chapters of the American Academy of Family Physicians, is excited to announce a virtual, American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-endorsed Family Medicine Certification Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) group study (formerly known as a SAM) focused on hospital medicine set for Sunday, October 30, beginning at 6 p.m.
Registration is limited to the first 40 participants and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. This program is only $50 for all OAFP members! (American Board of Family Medicine fees still apply.) Registration opens Thursday, September 1. Mark your calendars to register for this exciting opportunity!
This innovative program will use a robust web-based system that will allow family physician learners from across the country the opportunity to complete a KSA while engaging their peers and an expert content leader from a location of their choosing.
This cutting-edge program will bring the issues of hospital medicine directly into the physician’s home or office with guidance from a peer expert and the comfort of completing the KSA with fellow family physicians.
A completed KSA will provide 10 certification points towards your ABFM certification requirement and 8 live American Academy of Family Physicians Prescribed continuing medical education credits!
To participate, all you need is a computer, high speed internet access, registration, and a few pre-function items. The day of, participants will use an online polling system to work through KSA questions with our family medicine trained, hospital medicine expert. Our main goal is to pass the exam, with an expert speaker offering assistance when questions arise. First, questions will be displayed giving participants approximately 30 seconds to respond (time varies based on speed of participant response). Next, results will be displayed and discussed. Finally, answers will be submitted as a group and individuals will be credited for completion of the KSA.
Watch your inbox for an email on Thursday, September 1, with a link to register or visit the OAFP website. The deadline to register is Monday, October 17. Participation is open to the first 40 registrants. Any registrants after the first 40 will be placed on a waiting list. The overall virtual KSA attendance will not exceed 100 participants.
