As was recently announced the ABFM will be launching a pilot program that will assess the value and feasibility of a longitudinal assessment option to the 10-year high-stakes reaccreditation examination. The Family Medicine Certification Longitudinal Assessment (FMCLA) will offer 25 questions answered quarterly online in lieu of the one-day exam. On December 10, AAFP Senior Vice President of Education Clif Knight, MD, FAAFP and ABFM Senior Vice President Elizabeth Baxley, MD hosted a live webinar to discuss the longitudinal assessment and answer AAFP member questions. The recorded webinar is available here.
The AAFP has also published additional information on the pilot including a self-check and preparation tools.
