American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

SESAP Sampler

SESAP Sampler

SESAP® Sampler is designed to enhance surgical decision-making skills and patient care through continuous, periodic self-assessment. Developed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education, SESAP Sampler allows users to conveniently assess their surgical knowledge from anywhere, at any time.

Each month, subscribers receive 5 case-based, multiple-choice questions, along with discussions regarding each possible answer and citations for supporting references. The previously unpublished questions were developed through the same rigorous, multistep, peer-review process used for SESAP® 16. Upcoming topics include head and neck, breast, alimentary tract, abdomen, vascular, endocrine, trauma, perioperative care, surgical critical care, problems in related specialties, oncology, skin/soft tissue, legal/ethics, and patient safety/systems of care.

The Web-based self-assessment resource is offered as an annual subscription—consisting of 12 monthly online modules—and provides the opportunity to earn a maximum of 6 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. These credits may be helpful in meeting continuing medical education requirements.
