The ABMS Medical Toxicology Subboard facilitates continuous learning by identifying a set of Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (LLSA) readings every other year to guide diplomats in self-study of seminal Medical Toxicology literature. The 2023 ACMT/AACT LLSA Webinar on Wednesday, July 26, 2023 from 1-3pm ET will provide a dynamic and comprehensive review of these articles, as well as the ability to sit for the 2023 Toxicology LLSA test. 

Does the LLSA Still Count? Medial Toxicology Board Re-Certification is undergoing a change; switching to modules, like what has occurred in Emergency Medicine. However, through the 2026 Re-Certification exam, the LLSA tests (2 of them) can represent one of the required four modules. Thus, LLSA tests are still pertinent to Board Re-Certification if the user desires. And…not even counting the Board exam, the LLSA review is simply a great review of pertinent literature!


Co-Hosted by Kurt Kleinschmidt, MD and Kapil Sharma, MD. Other presenters include Brandon Warrick, MD; Brandon Wills, DO; and Evan Schwarz, MD. After the presenters have reviewed the articles, participants may remain on the webinar and take the test together. 


The material review and the taking of the test will occur over a two-hour period. Of note, the same review will occur at NACCT this Fall.
