DDSEP® 6 Marks Return of Popular Educational Resource

November 02, 2010

This December, the AGA Institute will launch the sixth edition of its popular self-assessment activity, the Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program® or DDSEP. Based on the GI core curriculum, DDSEP provides a current and comprehensive review of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.

Under the direction of Editor-in-Chief, John F. Kuemmerle Jr., MD, AGAF, DDSEP 6 features revised and expanded content written by the field's leading experts. It also includes new information on digestive disease in women, nutrition, obesity and eating disorders, as well as all new questions and critiques. The program offers more CME than in previous editions — up to 64 CME credits — with greater flexibility. Users can now claim CME for each chapter, allowing them to focus on specific areas of interest.

"The return of DDSEP fills a void in our field for a current, comprehensive textbook and board-review reference," said Dr. Kuemmerle. "Written and published in the same year, DDSEP avoids the obsolescence often seen with traditional textbooks, providing users with current, reliable information that addresses the latest advances in GI clinical care."

DDSEP has long been used by gastroenterologists to update and assess their knowledge, enhance clinical decision-making skills, prepare for GI board and American Board of Internal Medicine maintenance of certification exams, and earn CME. One of DDSEP's most popular features is that users can work through the program at their own pace and in their preferred format. DDSEP 6 is offered in a combined print/online format, which includes a syllabus, question book and answer/critique book, and online access to the questions.

DDSEP 6 can be pre-ordered through Nov. 30 at a $50 discount. Learn more and order now.
