This activity has been designed to enhance the participant’s clinical knowledge base of plastic surgery in the following clinical component areas: 1) Hand and 2) Core. It is intended to serve as a self-assessment tool. The questions in this activity meet ABPS Maintenance of Certification® in Plastic Surgery (MOC-PS®) standards. Additionally, this activity will help members focus their MOC-PS® preparation efforts. 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 both modules and providing a reflective statement, participants earn up to 18.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Participants may choose to study all modules or only those that are educationally relevant to their practice and professional interests. The contents include a selection of questions, critiqued responses, and references from recent In-Service Examinations for plastic surgeons. This product is provided in PDF format.

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.
