American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine
The Electrodiagnostic (EDX) Self-Assessment Examination (SAE) is a great resource for brushing up on EDX knowledge and skill sets. SAEs make excellent study guides for maintaining certifications or preparing for board examinations. They are also valuable teaching and program assessment tools for residency and fellowship programs. The EDX SAE consists of 100 multiple-choice questions and a DVD of 50 multiple-choice video questions. In the video portion of the examination, physicians are asked to identify waveforms and their characteristics, and to answer questions about anatomic localization pertaining to EMG and nerve conduction techniques. The written portion of the exam tests background knowledge and the application of neurophysiologic techniques to the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of patients.
The Electrodiagnostic Self-Assessment Examination committee meets two times a year. As a part of their meeting agenda, the committee reviews the questions from the examination database and addresses gaps in knowledge. When reviewing questions, the committee discusses the questions’ relevance to current practices in the electrodiagnostic field, and creates new or updates existing questions as needed.
