SESAP 18

SESAP® 18 consists of 665 newly constructed, case-based, multiple-choice questions for self-study and review. Critiques for each question provide evidence-based explanations addressing all the answer choices, supporting references from the current literature, and related images. The latest edition covers a breadth of general surgery in nine content categories: abdomen, alimentary tract, breast, emergency general surgery, endocrine, legal/ethics, perioperative care, surgical critical care, and trauma.

Subscribers can choose from packages containing all nine categories or as few as three categories. Other categories can be added any time based on learning and practice needs.

This edition continues the tradition of offering unsurpassed quality educational content developed across three years by six committees with a total of 38 practicing surgeon authors representing a range of clinical and academic environments, general surgery and surgical specialties, and practices from every region of the United States.

In 2023, SESAP 18 Advanced will be released, featuring seven modules of in-depth content for surgeons seeking further knowledge in specific areas. Modules in abdomen; alimentary tract; breast; emergency general surgery/trauma; endocrine; melanoma, sarcoma, and soft tissue/skin malignancies; and surgical critical care address clinical problems and areas that are complex and may be ambiguous or still evolving.
