Select a SESAP 17 Package

SESAP® 17 offers flexible package options, suitable to a variety of educational preferences and surgical practices. First determine whether you are eligible to earn continuing medical education (CME) credit and decide whether CME credit is needed. CME credit is not available to residents through SESAP 17. (Residents please refer to NonCME Packages below.) All CME credit for SESAP 17 must be claimed by October 31, 2022. Web access to SESAP 17 will be discontinued on December 31, 2022, when the program is retired.

Then select whether you would like to purchase all 13 categories—which includes a 10 percent savings and the option to add the print version—or if you would like to purchase by category. When purchasing by category, the Perioperative Care and Legal/Ethics categories plus a minimum of one other category are required. Additional categories may be added later. Please visit the SESAP content webpage for a description of each category.

SESAP 17 offers a two-volume printed syllabus of the program content. The printed version of SESAP 17 is available only when all 13 web categories are purchased.

CME Packages

SESAP 17 provides 109 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, all of which can be used for self-assessment purposes. CME credit is claimed by category. SESAP 17 is certified for credit through October 31, 2022, and all credit must be claimed by this date.

To earn CME credit, a CME package must be purchased and the program completed online. The print version cannot be used to earn CME credit. If selected, the print version will be shipped after successful completion of the CME requirements online.

CME participants complete a process of self-study 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 three attempts. Additional review is offered until a score of 80 percent is achieved.

SESAP 17 provides more flexibility to move across categories than past editions. Participants are able to switch categories throughout most of the program and are only restricted from changing categories during CME tests.

NonCME Packages

NonCME packages contain the same questions, critiques, and references as the CME version. The NonCME web program contains one learning modality and does not include tests. However, the program will track progress and provide a score during self-study. Residents may generate a Residents Report from the web program to document progress for program directors. Also, answers in self-study can be reset for further practice. The NonCME print version is shipped at the time of purchase.

Prerequisites for SESAP 17 Advanced

SESAP 17 Advanced will be released in 2020 and will feature additional in-depth content for surgeons seeking further knowledge in specific areas. Modules in abdomen and alimentary tract, breast, endocrine, surgical critical care, and trauma will be available. Each of the SESAP 17 Advanced modules will have the corresponding category of SESAP 17 as a prerequisite. For example, the surgical critical care category of SESAP 17 is required to purchase the surgical critical care module of SESAP 17 Advanced.

Please note: Both the abdomen and alimentary tract categories of SESAP 17 are required to purchase the combined abdomen/alimentary tract module of SESAP 17 Advanced.

Subscribers who purchase all 13 categories of SESAP 17 will fulfill all prerequisites for SESAP 17 Advanced.
