2021 NSQIP SCR Certification Exam

ACS National Surgical Quality Improvement Program® (ACS NSQIP®) Surgical Clinical Reviewer Certification Exam

ACS NSQIP® requires, in addition to the initial SCR training and certification, that all eligible SCRs complete the requirements of annual recertification. The purpose of this certification is to measure the SCRs current level of knowledge and understanding of NSQIP®, including aspects such as case inclusion, variable definitions, and other program guidelines.  Those who pass the certification exam demonstrate competency in the application of the program's rigorous data definitions. 

Please note, as hospitals are still recovering from the impacts of COVID-19, NSQIP® moved the start date of the exam to April 1, 2021. The completion timeframe has also been extended to June 30, 2021. The 2021 NSQIP® SCR Certification exam will be available April 1, 2021, and close on June 30, 2021.  

New SCRs who were registered for initial SCR training on or after January 1, 2021 are not required to take the 2021 SCR Certification Exam. These SCRs will be registered for the annual SCR Certification Exam in 2022.
