The Academy of Medicine, Singapore is pleased to announce the launch of its pilot specialty-specific Self-Learning Module (SLM).  The SLM is an initiative in anticipation of SMC's proposed mandatory Maintenance of Competency (MOC) which will replace the current compulsory Continuing  Medical Education (CME) programme in the coming years.

 

Over the past many months, the Academy and its Colleges and Chapters have come together to develop these SLM units.  To-date, 26 specialty modules have been completed and uploaded. 

 

The pilot SLM is implemented under the current category 3B of the CME programme:-
 
• Participants can claim 5 CME points for the satisfactory completion of each SLM. 
• Main author/co-author will be awarded 3 CME points/1 CME point per SLM respectively.
• For each SLM, there will be 20 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and participants will have unlimited number of attempts to complete and pass the module.  The passing criteria is 100%. 

 

The SLM is currently only open to Fellows and Members of the Academy who can access the modules at their own time.  We strongly encourage Fellows and Members to make use of and benefit from this self-learning initiative.  We also appreciate your valuable feedback on our SLM to help us improve your learning experience.

 

We are pleased to announce the Academy’s SLM is a membership privilege for Fellows and Members. For non-Fellows/Members, enrolment and user access fees will apply.
