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

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.
