MKSAP 18 shares the same username and password as ACP Online, Annals of Internal Medicine, and most other online products from ACP. If you created a username and password when you purchased MKSAP 18 or if you are an ACP member and already have an ACP Online username and password, your username and password are the credentials you should enter to access MKSAP 18. If you do NOT already have an ACP Online account, create a new ACP account. Then you can return to mksap18.acponline.org and log in with your new ACP username and password.
Your username and password are the same as you use for most online products and services from ACP (e.g., Annals.org, ACP Online, and previous versions of MKSAP). If you forget your username or password or wish to make changes, you can edit your account information on ACP Online.
