With the expiration of the fourth edition of the Vascular Educational Self-Assessment Program (VESAP4) on July 31, owners have a bit more than six months to complete all modules and claim credits.
Those who want to purchase the educational product similarly should be aware of this expiration date; content and exams will not be available as of Aug. 1.
The online program contains 10 modules and more than 500 questions and is designed to meet Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements of the Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery for continuing medical education and MOC self-assessment credits.
VESAP4 is intended primarily for vascular surgeons preparing for qualifying, certification and recertification examinations in vascular surgery and to remain current in the specialty. Residents and fellows have found it useful for studying for their ABS In-Training and Vascular Surgery In-Training examinations.
Major structural changes are ahead for the recertification process and the MOC program. Thus, VESAP5 similarly will be an entirely new product. It is expected to debut by August 2020.
