About SESAP 18

Surgical Education and Self-Assessment Program (SESAP®) is a premier educational resource promoting excellence and expertise for practicing surgeons. SESAP editions have been published by the ACS since 1971, demonstrating the continued relevance of this valuable educational resource for self-study and review. The release of SESAP 18 continues the 50-year legacy of supporting surgeons who embrace the need for accurate self-assessment of their clinical knowledge based on current literature and practical experience and those surgeons who are committed to life-long learning.

Developed by the American College of Surgeons Division of Education, SESAP 18 provides a robust, learning experience with content that was peer-reviewed by 38 expert practicing surgeons. The latest edition of the program offers many new features allowing surgeons to tailor their learning to address individual needs and preferences. Whether one is seeking to stay current with the breadth of general surgery, enhance knowledge in a specific area, readily access the latest surgical knowledge, or excel on an examination, SESAP 18 is an ideal resource.
