1) Breast & Cosmetic
2) Comprehensive Integument
3) Craniomaxillofacial
4) Hand & Extremities
5) Core Surgical Principles

It is intended to serve as a study guide in self assessment format. The contents include a selection of questions, critiqued responses, and references from recent In-service Examinations for plastic surgeons. All practice and test questions were reviewed and found to be objective and supported by appropriate review of the literature and align with evidence-based research. Content in this educational activity has been reviewed by peers and professionals to determine that the content is fair, balanced, and unbiased.

At the successful completion of each module (passing score is 75%), participants earn PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Participants may choose to study all modules or only those that are educationally relevant to their practice and professional interests. By completing all modules, participants can earn up to 17 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. The contents include a selection of questions, critiqued responses, and references from recent In-Service Examinations for plastic surgeons.

Use of these materials are provided with the understanding that utilization and completion of the questions does not imply or guarantee a successful outcome on maintenance of certification efforts.
