The Maryland Academy of Family Physicians, in partnership with the Ohio, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, and Wisconsin chapters of the American Academy of Family Physicians, is excited to announce a virtual, American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-endorsed Family Medicine Certification knowledge self-assessment (KSA) group study focused on Health Counseling & Preventative Care, and Diabetes.

This innovative program will use a robust web-based system that will allow family physician learners from across the country the opportunity to complete a KSA while engaging their peers and an expert content leader from a location of their choosing.

Please note the topic for the December 12 virtual KSA has been changed to Diabetes. We planned to offer the Care of Women KSA for the first time ever, as it is a new topic being developed by the ABFM. Unfortunately, that KSA module may not be ready as originally planned. We apologize for any inconvenience.

A completed KSA will provide 10 certification points and 8 live, prescribed CME credits toward ABFM certification requirements.

Additional Details:

At the session, attendees will work together to complete the Knowledge Self-Assessment of the topic content area. Upon passing the assessment, you will receive 10 ABFM Certification Points and 8 live, prescribed CME Credits.

Attendees will discuss and complete the 60 questions that make up the Knowledge-Self Assessment. The answers from the group session will be reported directly to the ABFM on your behalf. The Clinical Self-Assessment is now optional and may be completed on your own for an additional 5 ABFM Certification Points and 4 CME Credits. (This was previously required under the old SAM format.)

Application for live continuing medical education (CME) credit has been filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Determination of credit is pending.

Registration Information:

Registration is limited to the first 20 participants, in the order that payment is received. Please be sure to make your online payment as soon as you complete the registration form.

Before registering for the KSA session, please check your ABFM record to see which modules you have completed within the past three years. Visit the MC-FP section of the ABFM website for more information or call (877) 223-7437.
