Critical Care Intensive Study Format

The BCCCP Intensive Studies will be held during the Midyear meeting. If you are board certified, you must purchase the package in order to receive the recertification assessment and claim the recertification credit. This package includes the home study sessions and the recertification assessments, available no later than Feb. 2, 2022. Any recertification credit earned will be applied in the year in which you pass the assessment.

If you are currently enrolled in the 1-Year Recertification Plan, 3-Year Recertification Plan, or the Review and Recertification Reward Program (RRRP), the Intensive Studies Package is included as part of your enrollment.

How to purchase a recertification package:

  • During the Midyear meeting registration process, add the desired recertification package (BCACP, BCCCP, BCGP, BCOP, BCPPS, BCPS).
  • After the Midyear meeting, complete and pass the recertification assessments for the desired sessions. Each session provides 1 to 2 hours of credit and features immediate pass/fail notification with real-time reporting of recertification credit to BPS. Clinical Sessions assessments will be available on Dec. 15, 2021 and Intensive Studies assessments will be available on Feb. 2, 2022.
  • A range of 4 to 6.5 hours of credit may be earned, depending on the specialty.
  • Dual- or triple-certified? Passing a recertification assessment for a session with multiple certifications will provide you credit for each of your specialties.


You must be a full-time Midyear meeting registrant to purchase the Intensive Studies or Clinical Sessions packages at the reduced rate. The price for 4 to 6.5 hours of recertification credit for the  Intensive Studies and Clinical Sessions packages is $50 per specialty for Midyear Clinical Meeting registrants. This includes the recorded versions of the sessions and the recertification assessments. The special meeting price expires on Dec. 9, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. (ET).
