EP SAP – Coming in Late January 2019!

EP SAP is ACC's newest self-assessment program covering the entire field of clinical cardiac electrophysiology.

It's a great resource for:

  • Perfecting your knowledge of electrophysiology. Use EP SAP to identify your knowledge gaps, reinforce your existing knowledge, and learn new information.
  • Earning CME/MOC/ECME credit. EP SAP offers 50+ CME credits and medical knowledge MOC points.
  • Passing the Boards. Use EP SAP to prepare for the Boards – learn about the ABIM blueprint, simulate taking a Board exam, practice with hundreds of ABIM-style questions that include rationale, references, and links to related text, learn from educational text and lectures, and identify your knowledge gaps so you can plan additional study.

EP SAP Features

  • Thorough coverage of the field through a comprehensive text plus hundreds of Board style questions:
    • Challenge yourself with questions that are ALL case-based rather than simple knowledge questions.
    • Create custom quizzes and simulate Board exams to personalize your learning.
    • Link from each question to its related text so you can quickly and easily learn more on that subject.
    • An enhanced quiz engine lets you easily highlight and bookmark questions so you can revisit them later.
  • Regular updates. EP SAP will be updated yearly! Each year, new science and guidelines will be added to all topics, while 20% of topics will be thoroughly revised and republished. Over a 5-year period, the entire product will refreshed.
  • Convenient online format gives you easy access from anywhere.
  • A New 5-year Access model. Your purchase gives you dedicated access for 5 years and includes the yearly updates mentioned above.
  • 50+ CME and MOC medical knowledge points. ECME credit is available for users outside the US.
  • Print options let you print text and/or questions at your convenience.

ACC is working with ABIM to make a version of EP SAP an alternate MOC assessment option for electrophysiologists who wish to maintain their ABIM certification. Look for details in Q2 2019!

When approved, this feature will be available to EP SAP purchasers enrolled in the MOC program at no additional cost.

  CME/MOC/ECME Information

Accreditation

The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The ACCF designates this enduring material for a maximum of 56 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activities.

While offering CME credits noted above, this program is not intended to provide extensive training or certification in the field.

MOC

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 56 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

ECME Information

Cardiology Magazine Image

EP SAP will be accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 56 hours of External CME credits. Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) have recognized each other's accreditation systems as substantially equivalent. Apply for credit through the post-course evaluation.
