Offers & Discounts, exclusive to ACP members

Make the most of these significant discounts to help you get the most of your ACP membership while advancing your knowledge and improving patient care.

ACP is pleased to make another special offer to medical institutions in low/low-middle income countries as defined by the World Bank Economic Indicators. The College will donate one set of Medical Knowledge Self-Assessment Program (MKSAP) 16 Print books or up to 3 individual books of the same sub-specialty section and 9 individual sub-specialty books in total, to medical institutions, while supplies last. The institution would only need to pay for shipping (1-3 individual books - $25, 4-9 individual books - $60, MKSAP 16 all books - $60). Medical institutions include hospitals, training programs, clinics and other similar facilities where there are groups of internists who would benefit from this excellent educational resource.

As you may know, the newest edition, MKSAP 17 was published this year, so MKSAP 16 has reached the end of its sales cycle. The clinical guidance in MKSAP 16 is still current, however, which is why we would like to donate remaining books to institutions that could use them.

An ACP Master, Fellow or Member can complete the form on behalf of the institution. You would need to indicate who would receive this shipment and payment information for the shipping charges. More information about MKSAP 16 can be found here.
Contact the ACP International Programs office at with questions.

MKSAP has been trusted by internists since 1967 as the best resource to update knowledge, identify learning gaps, stay current, and gain the knowledge needed to provide the best patient care.
