Examination Dates: April 4-11, 2023

The Multidisciplinary Critical Care Knowledge Assessment Program (MCCKAP) examination is a four-hour, timed, multiple-choice examination with accompanying graphics, including diagnostic imaging, monitoring waveforms, and photomicrographs. The examination is given in English and requires a connection to the internet. The questions pertain to critical care knowledge and patient management. Based on national standards, the examination content is developed by multidisciplinary critical care practitioners experienced in examination preparation and analysis. No accredited continuing education is provided by SCCM for this program.

The annual MCCKAP examination helps program directors and individual fellows:

  • ​Assess critical care knowledge gained during fellowship training
  • Prepare fellows for the subspecialty board examinations in critical care
  • Identify specific areas of strength and weakness with lists of references and key terms for missed questions
  • Assess results for each individual fellow and the overall program, as well as the institution’s percentile ranking

Program directors are able to see the progress of their fellows in real time and access raw scores immediately upon student completion through the SCCM Online Learning Director Portal. Final results will be available approximately five weeks after the examination closes.​
