APSA ExPERT (Exam-based Pediatric surgery Educational Reference Tool) CME Program

The ExPERT medical education program is an innovative platform designed to help practicing pediatric surgeons incorporate the available medical literature into the care of their patients. It provides integrated self-assessment and continuous certification CME credits.

NEW! As of April 2018, ExPERT has moved to a new platform, APSA's Pediatric Surgery Library, powered by Unbound Medicine; bookmark this link to access your subscription.

Pediatric Surgery NaT

From presentation to procedures to long-term outcomes, keep the current general surgical care of children at your fingertips. The Pediatric Surgery NaT is written for pediatric surgeons by pediatric surgeons and is designed for those both in practice and in training. It contains learning objectives, images, videos and links to MOC CME and the medical literature. Note: to take advantage of the MOC CME, you also need to be subscribed to ExPERT.

APSA Annual Meeting CME Credit 

Attendees to the APSA Annual Meetings can earn attendance CME credit or MOC credit by answering questions.

NEW! As of April 2018, you can access both types of credit through one link.

Literature Reviews

Many of APSA's committees make recommendations on scientific literature which is of interest to the pediatric surgeon's practice, but which may be outside of the usual literature sources that the pediatric surgeon surveys. If you are an ExPERT subscriber, you can earn CME credit for some of the articles.
