A medical student finishing Step 1 or Step 2 examinations receives a score. The score reflects answers that the student knew, answers chosen by process of elimination, or answers the student guessed correctly. The Medical Knowledge Self-Assessment Program1 is an authoritative manual designed to update internists on the practice of medicine over the previous 3 years. Each section of the document ends with a series of multiple-choice questions. The physician selects responses and submits the answers to the American College of Physicians, which awards the CME credits.
