What is the Medical Knowledge Self Assessment Program® (MKSAP®)?

Introduced in 1968, the Medical Knowledge Self Assessment Program (MKSAP) has been providing physicians the opportunity to measure their individual knowledge in the broad specialty of internal medicine.

Every three years, MKSAP is updated by an editorial team of more than 100 physicians and headed by world-renowned experts. As a result, physicians who use MKSAP are made aware of the most current and critical information in the core of internal medicine and its subspecialties.

Many physicians rely on MKSAP for clinical reference, earning CME credits and MOC points. For ABIM Board preparation it is widely considered the go-to source. MKSAP 16 content covers:

  • Cardiovascular Medicine
  • Dermatology
  • Endocrinology and Metabolism
  • Gastroenterology and Hepatology
  • General Internal Medicine
  • Hematology and Oncology
  • Infectious Disease
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology
  • Rheumatology
  • Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

Hospital Medicine content is highlighted across all specialty areas.
