Self Assessment Module (SAM) Information

The 66th Annual Scientific Meeting offers sessions requiring completion of a post-test. In order to receive SAM credits, participants must pass a test based on guidelines issued by the American Board of Pathology (ABP). ABP Guidelines can be accessed here: ABP Guidelines

The SAMs are REQUIRED for:

  • All Video Microscopy Tutorials
  • All Non-Microscopic, Mini Non-Microscopic and Microscopic Workshops
  • All Panel Luncheon Seminars
  • All Digital Slide Seminars
  • Selected  Scientific Sessions (State of the Art Symposium, Current Issues in Cytology and Diagnostic Cytology Seminar)

As speakers for the ASC, you are agreeing to provide quality SAMs questions and will make edits per the Scientific Program Committee’s request.

SAMs consist of:

      • Questions (at least 5 questions for every hour of instruction)
      • Answers
      • Short explanations of the correct answer
      • Relevant references
