The Residency Visitation Program (RVP)

The RVP is a NO COST opportunity for your residents to receive a presentation from a member of the ABEM Board of Directors. It is provided to EM residency programs once every three to four years to try and make the presentation available to each resident at some point during their training.

The presentation includes information about:

  • Board eligibility
  • The steps to becoming ABEM certified
  • Details about certification examinations
  • The development of Emergency Medicine as a specialty

EM Residency Program Directors are notified in the spring prior to the academic year in which they are offered the presentation.

Residency Program Access to LLSA 

ACGME- or RCPSC-accredited EM residency programs have access to EM Lifelong Learning Self-Assessment (LLSA) content for educational purposes. Static, non-functional EM LLSA copies will be made available annually to residency directors who complete a license agreement and pay a $1 fee. Note that beginning in 2023, the LLSA will be replaced with MyEMCert modules. However, you can still request access to previous tests.

Exam Development

To become ABEM certified, candidates must demonstrate competence in the KSAs (knowledge, skills, and abilities) through the examination process. ABEM exam content is based on the EM Model, which is updated every three years to be the most current source of EM information.
