ASH Self-Assessment Program receives approval for maintenance of certification credit

(WASHINGTON, October 25, 2005) The American Society of Hematology is pleased to announce that the ASH Self-Assessment Program (ASH-SAP) has been approved by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) to provide 60 lifelong learning points for the ABIM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.

In January 2006, the ABIM will modify its requirements for physicians seeking recertification.

"The ASH-SAP is designed to serve as the key resource for core knowledge in the pathophysiology and management of hematologic disorders. The SAP editors and authors are sincerely gratified by the ABIM recognition and approval of the SAP as a core component of board recertification, and by the benefit this provides to practicing hematologists," said Michael E. Williams, M.D., co-editor of the current edition of the ASH-SAP and Chair of the ASH Committee on Educational Affairs.

The ASH-SAP is a comprehensive reference and teaching tool that is divided into chapters dedicated to specific topical areas in hematology, providing timely clinical updates in each area. The self-assessment exam is composed of case-based, multiple-choice questions and critiques. The ASH-SAP's Web-based multimedia component links references in the text and exam to other educational resources offered by the American Society of Hematology, including articles in Blood, articles in Hematology (the ASH Education Program Book), and ASH Image Bank images.

The ABIM is the U.S. board that establishes the standards and creates the examinations for certification and maintenance of certification in internal medicine and its subspecialties, includ
