Information on the LLSA examination:

The American Board of Emergency Medicine's Continuous Certification (ConCert) program requires the reading of up to 20 designated articles each year. In order to maintain board certification, emergency physicians must complete the annual Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (LLSA) test on the ABEM website based upon the content of these articles. A new LLSA test and associated reading list will be developed each year. You have up to five years to take each test. The 2016 LLSA exam will be available from April 2016 until April 2021.

Due to copyright restrictions, a reprint of article 2 and one table in article 8 are not included in the 2016 LLSA Study Guide.
