About - Seventh Edition


The American Society of Hematology Self-Assessment Program (ASH-SAP), Seventh Edition, is the most comprehensive edition to date, encompassing both adult and pediatric hematology, including both benign and malignant disorders. With 25 chapters, many newly rendered illustrations, and 258 multiplechoice questions, the ASH-SAP is designed for self-directed learning and review with case studies, key points, graphics, animation, and a glossary. Take advantage of the updated online-only features, including new and revised animated educational videos, as added enhancements.

A major goal of ASH-SAP is to provide challenging, informative multiple-choice questions in the Question and Answer Book (included with the textbook) for hematologists studying for professional certification or recertification exams. Successful completion of this activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 75 Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s MOC program. Participants earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.
