ROSEMONT, IL — The Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) is proud to announce that their recently launched Surgical Oncology Self-Assessment Program (SOSAP), the premier case-based learning tool for surgical oncologists, is now available as an iPad app. Offering more than 230 case- and problem-based multiple-choice questions, SOSAP lets users strengthen their expertise, stay up-to date with the latest advancements in surgical oncology and prepare for Board certification.

Via SOSAP, users can earn 60 AMA PRA category 1 credits™, fulfill three year’s worth of ABS Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2 self-assessment requirements and prepare for the ABS certification exam in Complex General Surgical Oncology.
