What is the MOC?

Category: Maintenance of Certification

The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is a critical component of board certification which: 

  • Runs on a traditional 10-year cycle
  • Provides proof of professional standing
  • Provides proof of Continued Medical Education (CME)
  • Allows for the assessment of up to date medical knowledge to help continue to improve patient care, communication skills and identify knowledge gaps to allow for remediation
  • Eliminates a ten-year high stakes exam (which can lead to loss of certification)
  • The MOC Dashboard on the ABPM member portal allows for ease of completion with automatic feedback and reminders
  • Provides added Convenience and serves as a more cost-effective solution
