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 MC-FP KSA while engaging their peers and an expert content leader from a location of their choosing. Although live KSA's are a popular way of completing the required MC-FP stage, this program is innovative in developing a virtual learning session and delivering it nationwide to a large group of physician learners at the same time. The session typically takes 4 hours to complete.
To participate, all you need is a computer, high-speed internet access, registration, and a few pre-function items (outlined in three easy steps below). The day of the session, participants will use an online polling system to work through KSA questions with our hospital medicine expert. Our main goal is to pass the exam, witn 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 audience 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 earning 10 ABFM points. In addition to the ABFM points, this activity will also provide the learner 8 Live AAFP CME credits.
*This Live activity, Virtual Knowledge Self-Assessment Group Study on Cerebrovascular Disease, with a beginning date of 10/29/2017, has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 8.00 Prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.*
Registration is limited to the first 15 participants, in the order that payment is received. Please be sure to make your online payment as soon as you complete the registration form.
