Information on the ABEM LLSA examination:

  • Depending on your recertification year, the LLSA examination is one of the components required for maintenance of certification (MOC) with the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).
  • The primary goal of the LLSA examination is to promote continuous learning by diplomates.
  • ABEM facilitates this learning by identifying an annual set of LLSA readings to guide diplomates in self-study of recent EM literature. Readings are intended to address issues relevant to current clinical practice.
  • EB Medicine’s study guide is created each year for emergency medicine physicians preparing for the ABEM examination required for maintenance of their certification.

Switching From LLSA to MyEMCert:

ABEM has updated the recertification process with a transition to MyEMCert, and will no longer offer the LLSA exam after 2025. Additionally, the ConCert exam will no longer be available after 2022.
