KSA Study Group: Coronary Artery Disease
What is the Knowledge Self-Assessment?
Before July 22, 2016, Family Physicians were required to complete a Self-Assessment Module (SAM) that included both a 60-question knowledge assessment plus a clinical simulation.
Now, the Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) is the minimum required self-assessment activity. A completed KSA will provide 10 certification points and eight CME credits toward diplomates' certification requirements. The Clinical Self-Assessment is available as an optional self-assessment activity that can be completed for five certification points and four CME credits toward certification requirements.

Saturday, April 22, 2017 KSA: Coronary Artery Disease
Facilitator: Sheala Jafry, MD, FAAFP
Content: The content of the KSA on Coronary Artery Disease demonstrates the highest standards of ethical, education and medical standards, which effectively merges clinical practice and current evidence-based medical research. Upon completion of Part A, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge in 1) Understanding and describing the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease; 2) Diagnosing coronary artery disease; 3) Interpreting EKGs; 4) Managing chronic coronary artery disease; 5) Managing acute coronary syndromes; and 6) Recognizing and managing myocardial infarction and its complications.
Schedule: Breakfast will be served at 8:00 a.m. The KSA will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and conclude by 12:30 p.m., during which you will collectively complete the 60-question KSA with your colleagues in a distraction-free, group discussion format facilitated by Dr. Jafry. At the session's conclusion, MAFP staff will submit your score to ABFM, and in turn, ABFM will reportyour CME to AAFP. Please note: The registration fee includes breakfast and refreshments; it does not include ABFM fees or recertification fees.
