Study Smarter for RCPSC Certification with MKSAP 16
If you are participating in the RCPSC MOC program, MKSAP is an excellent way to satisfy your MOC credit requirements while updating your medical knowledge.
Our highly trusted program is approved for Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program credits. MKSAP 16 is an Accredited Self-Assessment Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). The Royal College allows you to earn 3 credits per hour for self-assessment activities. MKSAP 16 will enable you to earn up to 75% of your required 400 credits during your 5-year MOC cycle.
Introduced in 1968, The Medical Knowledge Self Assessment Program (MKSAP) from the American College of Physicians (ACP) 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.
How RCPSC Fellows can earn MOC credits
