Select a SESAP 16 Package

SESAP 16® offers five package options, suitable to a variety of educational preferences. First determine whether Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is needed; then decide on a format of web, print, or both.

All CME credit for SESAP 16 must be claimed by October 31, 2019. Web access to SESAP 16 will be discontinued on December 31, 2019, when the program is retired.

CME Packages

SESAP 16 provides 90 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, all of which can be used for self-assessment purposes. CME credit can be claimed as each of the 14 categories is completed or all at once at the end of the program. SESAP 16 is certified for credit through October 31, 2019, and all credit must be claimed by this date.

To earn CME credit, the CME Web or the CME Web with Supplemental Print package must be purchased and the program completed online. The supplemental print consists of the two-volume syllabus, which will be forwarded after successful completion of the CME requirements online. The print version cannot be used to earn CME credit.

CME participants complete a process of self-assessment and review, followed by a CME test, to show mastery of the content and to reinforce learning. To obtain CME credit, 80 percent of the questions must be answered correctly within 3 attempts. Additional review is offered until a score of 80 percent is achieved. Each category must be completed before moving to the next one, but the participant may log out and resume study later with the last-answered item.

NonCME Packages

Individuals who do not need CME credit may choose from three packages—NonCME Web, NonCME Print only, or NonCME Web with Print—all of which contain the same questions and critiques as the CME version. Compared with the CME version, the NonCME Web version provides more flexibility to move across categories without completing any one section. The program will record answers for future reference but does not provide scores. The NonCME Print packages include the two-volume syllabus, self-assessment book, and self-scoring booklet.

SESAP 16 is designed and licensed for individual use only. Institutions may not purchase SESAP 16 for shared use, and multiple subscribers may not use the same account.

Residents who use the CME version of SESAP 16 are not eligible to earn CME credit and will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.

*Nonmember Residents in a surgical residency program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education cannot order online. A letter of verification from the program director or administrator must be submitted, and the order must be placed by phone or mail.

** Your credit card will not be charged for your SESAP 16 NonCME Web with Print package until the print package is shipped—approximately 24–72 hours. At that time, you will receive an e-mail with your login information, which is the same as your ACS member login.
