Self Assessment Modules

Self-assessment modules (SAMs) are educational activities that utilize instruction and self-administered examination to improve skills, knowledge, patient care, and/or practice performance. (By definition for ABR-MOC, ABR roughly equates a SAM-related educational event to one ASTRO-type refresher course.) The sponsoring body provides feedback to the participant in confirming scoring, indicating where the participant stands in relation to his/her peers in test performance, and, when appropriate, where additional educational materials are located relative to the overall body of information, or specifically, to those areas not answered correctly by the diplomate. The diplomate receives CME credit for attending the educational session; credit for the SAM is accorded only when the participant submits the multiple choice exam.

Meeting registrants are encouraged to participate in the ARS sponsored SAMs.
