"Since its inception in 1967, MKSAP has established the gold
standard for self-assessment and medical education," said Dr. David
Fleming, president, ACP. "MKSAP offers the most current and

subspecialties. The latest edition offers many new features, giving
internists comprehensive learning options."
Updated by an editorial team of more than 100 physicians, MKSAP
17 is available in print and digital versions and features

are similar to what physicians will see on the board

specific area of internal medicine and includes High Value Care
recommendations and integrated High Value Care key points,
