ACCME News Release (11/29/18)
Ophthalmologists who are certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) can now earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit for taking part in accredited continuing medical education (CME) activities that adhere to ABO MOC standards. The initiative is a result of a partnership between the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the ABO. Accredited CME providers within the ACCME system can register their activities in the Program and Activity Reporting System for ABO MOC. Activities beginning on or after January 1, 2018, are eligible. Starting next year, ABO-Certified ophthalmologists can earn MOC credit for Lifelong Learning (Part II), Self-Assessment (Part II), Patient Safety (Part II), and Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV). "By working together, the ACCME and the ABO empower our community of educators to offer ABO-Certified ophthalmologists more flexibility in choosing effective, relevant education that meets their needs and supports their dedication to delivering the highest quality care," said Graham McMahon, MD,?MMSc, ACCME's president and CEO.
