How to Help Your ABIM Certified Physicians Meet Their 5 Year MOC Point Requirements

ACCME Newsletter (09/27/18)

In order to maintain certification, physicians certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) must earn 100 maintenance of certification (MOC) points every five years. To help learners meet their requirements, it is important for continuing medical education (CME) providers to inform them that their CME+ABIM MOC activities can be applied toward their MOC points. CME providers should describe how learners can earn ABIM MOC points at their activities, noting that the process is easy. Additionally, it should be noted that the CME provider handles the collection and submission of completion data, so ABIM can award the MOC points, and learners should be reminded to claim their points for recently completed activities. With year-end 2018 marking the end of the initial five-year deadline following the adoption of ABIM's continuous MOC program, many learners will need to have 100 points in place by December 31.
