What is a SAM Group Study Workshop?
Get credit for the Self Assessment Module of your American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Maintenance of Certification though the SAM Group Study Workshops offered by MAFP Foundation. At the workshop, moderated by a MAFP board member, attendees will discuss and complete the 60-question Knowledge Assessment portion of the module. Everyone in attendance for the workshop will be logged into the ABFM site as a group and all answers will post to each person’s individual account.
How do I know if I am eligible?
Participants will receive credit if they are currently eligible and enrolled in the ABFM MC-FP process, haven’t completed the current MC-FP stage, paid the MC-FP fees to the ABFM prior to completing the Clinical Simulation, completed the Clinical Simulation, and attended and fully participated in the educational discussion for the entire session. To check your status with ABFM, call (877) 223-7437.
How many hours CME credit do I get for the SAM?
MAFP does not accredit and therefore cannot provide CME for participating in the SAM Group Study Workshop or the Clinical Simulation. ABFM does award 12 credits to diplomats upon completion of the module.
Can I do the Clinical Simulation on the same day?
Yes. Attendees will be eligible to complete the Clinical Simulation online after the conference. Because it is an individual activity, it cannot be completed in the group format.
What does the fee cover?
The SAM Group Study Workshop fee is $300 and covers the following:
- Breakfast, lunch, and breaks during the workshop
- A copy of the 60-question Knowledge Assessment for review and discussion
