AIM Self-Assessment

Price: $199 for College Members, $299 for non-members

You can earn up to 22 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). 

This first Allergy & Immunology Medicine self-assessment module is designed to help allergy/immunology providers obtain new knowledge, as well as reaffirm existing knowledge. It also helps allergists/immunologists evaluate and maintain their clinical competence. The module consists of 108 case-based, multiple-choice questions. Comprehensive discussions provide evidence-based explanations regarding all answer options, as well as provides supporting references from the current literature. The questions address two areas of study (basic science and clinical science) and nine categories (immune mechanisms, cells involved in immune response, immunological disorders, non-disease specific pharmacology/therapeutics, anatomy/physiology/pathology, research principles, hypersensitivity disorders, specific diagnostic modalities, and allergens/antigens).

There are 4 modes within this module: Pretest, Learn, Posttest and Comparison.

Pretest: This initial self-audit allows for one to identify their gaps in knowledge related to established knowledge in allergy and immunology. Answer each question once and receive a Pretest Score at the end.

Learn: This study mode allows one to answer questions, review evidence-based discussions, and link to PubMed abstracts of the references. Answer each question until the correct answer is chosen, then read the discussion and view the references. If you answer incorrectly, you will be given a brief statement on why that answer choice is incorrect. The comprehensive discussion includes rationale for all answer options, whether they are correct or incorrect.

Posttest: This final audit allows one to measure the amount of learning that has occurred. Answer each question once and receive a Posttest Score at the end. One has 3 attempts to achieve a passing score of 80% or better.

Comparison: This final mode provides a comparison chart showing one’s pretest vs posttest scores, and a peer-to-peer comparison that shows how one compares to their colleagues answering the same questions.
