Save the Date: Virtual Health Counseling & Preventive Care KSA Group Study Set for October 17

7/11/2021
The NYSAFP, in partnership with the Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin chapters of the American Academy of Family Physicians, is excited to announce a virtual, American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-endorsed Family Medicine Certification knowledge self-assessment (KSA) group study focused on health counseling and preventive care. This KSA is a new topic, combining the previous preventive medicine and health behaviors into one, 60-question, single-answer assessment! Mark your calendar and register now for this opportunity on Sunday, October 17, beginning at 5:30 p.m. EST! This program is limited to the first 20 NYSAFP members who register and typically takes four hours to complete.
 
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 KSA while engaging their peers and an expert content leader from a location of their choosing.
Although live KSA sessions are a popular way of earning Family Medicine Certification points, 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. This cutting-edge program will bring the issues of health counseling and preventive care into the physician’s home or office with guidance from a peer expert and the comfort of completing the KSA with fellow family physicians.

A completed KSA will provide 10 certification points and 8 live, prescribed CME credits toward ABFM certification requirements.

For members, the cost to attend is $200  (ABFM fees still apply). To register, please visit here . The deadline to register is Wednesday, October 6. Participation is open to the first 20 registrants. Any registrants after the first 20 will be placed on a waiting list. The overall virtual KSA attendance will not exceed 150 participants.
