Successful completion of Knowledge Self-Assessments (KSAs) are required at each stage of the maintenance of certification process for family physicians. KSAs are focused on health topics and are comprised of a 60-question knowledge assessment and a clinical simulation. Family medicine residents are also required to complete at least one module with an optional second module during residency as part of their ABMF MC-FP entry requirements.

Since 2007, WAFP has hosted KSA workgroups, which allow the participant to complete the knowledge assessment portion of the KSA in a stimulating and interactive group session (the clinical simulation portion of a KSA is completed individually). Three modules are typically offered at the WAFP Annual Scientific Assembly in May, and WAFP helps local chapters set up stand-alone KSA workgroup days for their regional community at various times throughout the year.

For other educational opportunities, please see our upcoming CME calendar.
