EDUCATION: nephSAP® provides a learning vehicle for physicians, scientists, advanced practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other health professionals working and training in the field of nephrology to renew and refresh their clinical knowledge, diagnostic, and therapeutic skills. This enduring material provides learners challenging, clinically-oriented questions based on case vignettes, detailed learning objectives, a series of articles that review recent publications, and an editorial on an important and evolving topic. This combination of materials enables learners to rigorously assess their strengths and weaknesses in the broad domain of nephrology
SELF-ASSESSMENT: An examination with thirty, single-best-answer questions follow the 60 to 100 pages of topical articles. This examination is available online with immediate feedback which includes answers to all questions, brief discussions, and an updated bibliography.
CME and MOC: Those answering 75% correctly can claim up to 10 CME credits and MOC points per issue. Most state and local medical agencies as well as hospitals are demanding documentation of requisite CME credits for licensure and for staff appointments. A maximum of 50 credits annually can be obtained by successfully completing the nephSAP examinations. In addition, individuals enrolled in Maintenance of Certiﬁcation (MOC) through the American Board of Internal Medicine may obtain points toward MOC by successfully completing the self-assessment examination of nephSAP.
