How to Help Your ABIM Certified Physicians Meet Their Five-Year MOC Point Requirement

ACCME Highlights (09/29/20)

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has extended its Maintenance of Certification (MOC) deadline to Dec. 31, 2020, to offer physicians more flexibility to fulfill their five-year, 100-MOC point requirement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education encourages learners to earn and claim MOC points as they go, to guarantee that the courses they complete now will count later and avoid 11th-hour scrambles. The council recommends that continuing medical education (CME) providers let learners know that their CME+ABIM MOC activities count toward their MOC requirements. These opportunities should be clearly and regularly promoted through providers' communication channels, including websites, social media and newsletters. Providers also should employ the ABIM CME+MOC badge, downloadable here, to identify activities. Providers should further notify learners that the process is simple and easy, and detail how they can earn ABIM MOC points at their activities. Providers also should clarify that they will report learners' MOC points to ABIM, and remind them to claim MOC points for recently completed eligible activities.
