SAEs for Training Programs

AANEM Self-Assessment Examinations (SAEs) provide training program directors with the opportunity to compare the knowledge of their residents and fellows with others throughout the country. Each year in May, the AANEM offers two SAEs that are proctored on-site at hundreds of institutions. Other SAEs are available for purchase and can be used to assess resident and fellow training in more focused areas of EDX and NM disease.
