Activity Descriptions

Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) – Up to 128 CME Credits Available

Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) provide a unique opportunity to stay up to date on the latest developments in addiction medicine. They offer a comprehensive collection of relevant, evidence-based content, can be used as a tool to test your knowledge and skills, and one (1) CME unit is given for each completed SAM. There are four (4) questions per module and immediate feedback is given upon completing the self-assessment.

SAMs are designed to:

  • Facilitate knowledge assessment and improvement
  • Promote practice excellence
  • Advance commitment to professionalism

By completing evidence-based addiction articles with immediate self-assessment, physicians and medical professionals may increase their confidence and better assure their patients that they have aspired to a high standard of education and professionalism in the field. Continuous development of your knowledge set assures the public that a high standard of care is being advanced.

The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) has approved SAM01 – SAM91 for a maximum of 91 LLSA credits toward ABPM MOC Part II requirements, expiration date July 1, 2022.
