The MKSAP 17 Blueprint

The MKSAP 17 blueprint aligns well with the major content categories included in the Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine blueprint. Content and associated questions within the General Internal Medicine text on Palliative Care, Medical Ethics and Decision-Making, Quality, Safety, Clinical Reasoning, and Transitions of Care provide a solid learning foundation in Inpatient Care.

See a detailed outline of the FPHM content categories covered in MKSAP 17.

The ACP and MKSAP Legacies

ACP has long been the professional home for internists, and 90% of internists have spent time in a hospital setting. We therefore make it a priority to cover inpatient care in a number of ways, within MKSAP 17 as well as through the publication of hospital medicine textbooks, a monthly ACP Hospitalist publication, and a weekly hospital medicine e-newsletter.

The MKSAP 17 editors know hospitals. In fact, many have experience as educators in a hospital setting, and understand your needs. Since 1967, MKSAP has been the go-to source for board review and comprehensive knowledge updates. Our program gives you the opportunity to self-test in order to achieve exam goals, but it doesn't stop there—we give you a broader spectrum of care as well. MKSAP’s highly structured, psychometrically validated MCQs help learners heighten their skills in clinical reasoning by allowing them to assimilate the facts presented in our detailed question stems with the knowledge gained from reading the corresponding text sections to identify the most appropriate management, diagnosis, and treatment strategy for the clinical scenario presented.

The Value of MKSAP 17

Does it really make sense to use difference sources to complete one goal? When you consider the investment you are going to make, factor in that you could pay a steep price for another program that may not follow the blueprint or provide you with a syllabus. It may not have the richness of content or the trusted, lasting legacy. If you need something time-efficient and don't want to supplement your exam preparation with additional sources that are costly, MKSAP really is the prudent choice.

MKSAP 17 is approved by the ABIM for MOC points. These credits count as Medical Knowledge points for Internal Medicine MOC as well as Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine MOC. 

Plus, ACP members receive significant discounts on MKSAP.
