SEMPA, in conjunction with Rosh Review, has created a product that gives EMPA program directors the tools and resources needed to assess trainee’s medical knowledge individually and in comparison with other emergency medicine physician assistant (EMPA) residents/fellows.
The SEMPA/Rosh Review Postgraduate Assessment Program is the result of the endeavors of SEMPA's Postgraduate Education Committee to create a measurable means of identifying and documenting the value of postgraduate EMPA program training.
This subscription-based product gives EMPA postgraduate programs access to an extensive question bank from which program directors can assess their trainees’ medical knowledge base and identify areas where there may be opportunities for improvement in subject matter instruction.
As part of this assessment program, annual SEMPA/Rosh Review Pre-Training, Mid-Program and Final Exams are available and allow programs a means of evaluating their own didactic education performance. In addition, it allows programs to see how their learners compare to those in other participating programs. These exams are modeled after the emergency medicine physician-in-training exams.
Pre-Training, Mid-Program and Final Exam data from each program are calculated by Rosh Review and the scores are reported to each program. The score report provides an overall score and systems based category score for each learner in the program as well as for the overall class. Each participating program also receives an anonymous (other program names not provided with scores) program comparison score report on their program dashboard.

For those programs that already have a subscription and want to participate in the Mid-Program and Final Exams, please contact SEMPA at email@example.com.
Participating programs must obtain SEMPA membership at the resident level for their trainees. Nurse Practitioner fellows/residents may participate and obtain SEMPA resident level membership while in a postgraduate training program.
A letter of agreement and an application form are required for participation in the Mid-Program and Final Exams. Please contact SEMPA at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain these documents.
