CME Information - Eighth Edition

Of paramount importance to hematologists and others working in hematology related fields is the need to stay current with the latest advances in the rapidly evolving disciplines of adult and pediatric hematology. The American Society of Hematology Self-Assessment Program (ASH-SAP) is the only complete, comprehensive, educational resource available that fulfills this need while also providing thorough board and recertification preparation, as well as AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and lifelong learning points toward the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification program

The ASH-SAP is designed for self-directed learning and review through utilization of a textbook with case studies, key points, graphics, and a glossary. The activity is self-paced. Learners review and study the materials and then complete related multiple- choice questions in a separate question-and-answer book for self-assessment; the question-and-answer book also provides rationales for the answers for additional review and self-reflection. Extensive bibliographies are provided in the textbook as sources of information and for future reference.

The eighth edition of ASH-SAP is available in a variety of reading and testing formats to best suit your learning and certification needs. All formats contain the following:

  • Full-color text that contains the latest advancements in hematology
  • Additional case studies within the text to further illustrate and emphasize the clinical applications of core knowledge
  • Access to the companion website, which contains the information from the printed text but adds an interactive element, allowing users to move back and forth between questions and critiques, chapter text, and illustrative slides

The online material contains the full content of the printed book presented in a searchable format with hyperlinks to other educational resources, including Hematology, the ASH Education Program. Access to the online version is included with the purchase price of the print package. The printed question-and-answer book is available only with the print package.

Claiming CME and ABIM credit

The estimated time to complete this educational activity is 75 hours. To claim CME credit, all learners must complete the self-assessment test(s) of medical knowledge and a program evaluation, all of which are accessed through ASH Academy on Demand. Learners with scores of 80% or better on the self-assessment tests are eligible to claim credit for the activity.

To facilitate personalized learning, the self-assessment for this product is divided into 6 subtests, each of which focuses on a subset of the hematologic field.
