ABEM LLSA activities typically start with an annual set of readings to guide participants in self-study of recent Emergency Medicine literature. The Emergency Medicine Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (LLSA) exam is an open-book, unproctored test based on an annual set of readings, that is offered to help physicians reinforce what they learn from these readings.

ABEM diplomates are required to complete four ABEM LLSA tests in each five-year period of their ten-year certification, as well as report a baseline of 100 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™ per year.
