GESAP 9 - Biliary Module
GESAP 9 can be utilized in 1 of these 2 ways. You will be asked to make a selection before beginning this activity and it cannot be reversed. Note that the only way to receive MOC points for this activity is to take it in EXAMINATION mode.

  • LEARNING Mode (CME ONLY) - Selecting Learning mode is equivalent to using this content as a Study Guide, meaning after answering each question, your response is scored and the correct answer and commentary is revealed. You then continue to the next question until the end of the module. An 80% or better is considered passing and you have 3 opportunities to pass. Completing this module in Learning mode qualifies you for CME credit only, if applicable.
  • EXAMINATION Mode (CME and MOC) - Taking the module in examination mode is similar to Sitting for an exam. After answering all the questions, you will submit the exam for scoring. An 80% or better is considered passing and you have 3 opportunities to pass. Taking this module in Examination mode qualifies you for CME and MOC. After credit is claimed, you will be able to review your exam results, compare your responses to each question to those of your peers and review rationale to the correct response.

The 2018 On-Line Only edition of ASGE’s Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Self-Assessment Program (GESAP 9) is designed to stimulate and challenge learners through self-directed clinical thought processes using recall, interpretation, and problem-solving skills through 10 modules. These case-based, multiple-choice questions, feature clinical scenarios with numerous images and videos. Detailed critiques for each question include updated explanations and references to reflect the most current research and recommendations.

GESAP 9 contains new or revised questions that will sharpen your clinical judgment skills on a variety of endoscopy-related topics making it ideal for gastroenterologists or others practicing in the GI field who seek to earn CME and/or MOC points, prepare for an endoscopy-related exam, or evaluate one's knowledge in today's GI field.

Individual module topics include Biliary; Colorectal; Esophagus; Nutrition; Pancreas; Patient Preparation, Monitoring, and Sedation; Pediatrics; Small Intestine; Stomach; and Liver. These new or revised questions are considered by the authors to be among the best designed and written items. ASGE’s GESAP program is used most commonly as an invaluable study tool for those certifying or recertifying in gastroenterology.

This Biliary module includes 44 peer-reviewed questions and answers. Participants will be able to test their knowledge, view the rationale for the correct answers and related references, and compare their answers to those of their peers. Track your progress and return at any time.
