The Maryland Academy of Family Physicians, in partnership with the Ohio chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP), is excited to announce a set of virtual, American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-endorsed Family Medicine Certification knowledge self-assesment (KSA) group study focused on 1) Care of Hospitalized Patients and 2) Care of Women. These programs are limited to the first 20 members who register. Additional registrants after 20 will be placed on a wait list. Waitlisted registrants will be refunded in full if they do not get into the session.

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

This virtual learning session offers an innovative method for delivering a KSA nationwide to a large group of physician learners at the same time. Completion of this KSA will provide participants with 10 certification points towards their ABFM certification requirement. In addition, this activity has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 8 live Prescribed continuing medical education credits by the American Academy of Family Physicians.

How Does it Work:

Each day of the KSA, participants will use an online polling system to work through KSA questions with out palliative care expert.

Our main goal is to pass the exam, with an expert speaker offering assistance when questions arise.

First, questions will be displayed giving participants approximately 30 seconds to respond (time varies based on speed of participant response).

Next, results will be displayed and discussed.

Finally, answers will be submitted as a group and individuals will be credited for completion of the knowledge self-assessment, once evaluations have been submitted.

To Participate You Will Need:

To participate, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop) with a reliable high-speed internet connection, and a completed registration.
You will also need a telephone and/or speaker capabilities, but a microphone is NOT needed, as all lines will be muted.

Registration Information:

Registration is limited to the first 20 participants and will be taken on a first-paid, first-served basis. The cost to attend is $125 for members and $250 for non-members.

The deadline to register for Care of Hospitalized Patients is September 30. The deadline to register for Care of Women is November 4. ABFM fees still apply.
