Home Study Course

The Foundation’s most popular education product available.

  • Home Study Course (HSC) is a compendium of relevant and timely scientific journal articles for residents and practicing physicians spanning across all eight specialty areas in a practical four-section format.

  • It is the most affordable way to earn up to 40 CME credits per section based on a minimum passing score of 70% for each self-assessment exam.

  • Practicing physicians also have the option of a single-yearly exam submission deadline with no late fees which replaces the individual exam section deadlines. 

  • Enhanced features include online exam submissions (print and online packet subscribers), immediate access to exam scores and course completion transcriptions.
