What ABEM requires

  • Complete four LLSA activities in each 5-year period of your 10-year certification cycle.
  • Report an average of 25 AMA PRA Category 1™ Credits per year.

ABEM is the authority on how to complete LLSA. It’s easy to find out what you need to do.

How ACEP can help you meet these requirements

We’ve built an LLSA “reading room” where you can get the articles each LLSA activity is based on.

EM Reading Lists Article Summaries from Critical Decisions

The LLSA Literature Review in Critical Decisions is a monthly feature in Critical Decisions in Emergency Medicine written by faculty and residents of the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency. Each is a brief summary of an LLSA article accompanied by a list of key teaching points. Now, as a benefit of your ACEP membership, you may have all current summaries as compiled for Critical Decisions subscribers.
