In order to:
simplify MOC participation rules
continue the evolution to a more continuous
process, and
comply with the ABMS standard on public
reporting of diplomate MOC status
Continuous Certification
and
Public Reporting
Public Reporting of MOC Status
 Beginning March 2013: ABR has begun to report to
ABMS the MOC status (by certificate) of every
diplomate. Public reporting, an important driver in
healthcare transformation, began for 7 other ABMS
boards as early as August 2011
 Currently, 20 of 24 ABMS boards are publically reporting
MOC status
 Info is displayed on ABMS and ABR websites:
-
“Meeting the Requirements” of MOC
“Not Meeting the Requirements” of MOC
“Not Required to Participate” in MOC (Lifetime certificate holders)
About Public Reporting
 If not us, then who:
Continuous Certification
 Certificates issued in 2012 and after no longer
have “valid through” dates – instead continuous
certification will be contingent on meeting MOC
requirements
 Annual look-back used to determine MOC
participation status.
Part I  continuous
Part II and Part IV  past 3 years
Part III  past 10 years
 MOC requirements and fees unchanged

credits counted per year is unlimited
 You may take the MOC exam at any time, as long as
the previous MOC exam was passed no more than
