Fundamental concepts critical to understanding moc

Fundamental Concepts Critical to Understanding MOC

  • It is useful to think of MOC as two distinct processes

    • Earning points toward certification

    • Earning points toward “Meeting MOC Requirements”

  • These two process have their own time lines

    • For most diplomates these time lines are not synchronized

  • The two processes and asynchronous time lines causes confusion


Certification expires in 2014 2017 maintaining the certificate

Certification Expires in 2014-2017Maintaining the Certificate

  • Must earn a total of 100 MOC points at end of current certificate date (10 years)

  • At least 20 in Medical Knowledge

  • At least 20 in Practice Assessment

  • 60 in either area

  • Pass exam every 10 years


2014 2017 cohort meeting moc requirements

2014-2017 CohortMeeting MOC Requirements

  • Starting January 1, 2014

    • Earn some MOC points every 2 years (first milestone by December 31, 2015)

    • Earn 100 MOC points every 5 years (first milestone by end of December 31, 2018)

    • Complete a “patient voice activity” every 5 years

    • Complete an approved patient safety module every 5 years

  • 100 Points count for all certificates and do not have to be specialty specific

  • Pass exam every 10 years


2014 2017 cohort important notes

2014-2017 CohortImportant Notes

  • Points earned before 1/1/14 will count toward maintaining an existing certificate(s)

  • Points earned before 1/1/14 will not count toward “Meeting MOC Requirements”

  • Points earned after 1/1/14 will count for both maintaining an existing certificate(s) and “Meeting MOC Requirements”


2018 and beyond cohort m eeting moc requirements

2018 and Beyond CohortMeeting MOC Requirements

  • Earn some MOC points every 2 years

  • Earn 100 MOC points every 5 years

    • At least 20 in Medical Knowledge

    • At least 20 in Practice Assessment

    • 60 in either area

  • Complete a “patient voice activity” every 5 years

  • Complete an approved patient safety module every 5 years

  • Pass exam every 10 years


2018 and beyond cohort important note

2018 and Beyond CohortImportant Note

  • MOC points earned before 2014 will not count toward certification or toward “Meeting MOC Requirements”


Patient safety requirement

Patient Safety Requirement

  • Certain Medical Knowledge and Practice Assessment activities also qualify for Patient Safety

  • Only need 1 “activity” in this category every 5 years


Patient voice requirement

Patient Voice Requirement

  • There will be at least 4 different pathways to meet this requirement to be rolled out before the 2018 deadline.

  • These pathways will support retroactive credit

    • An approved activity completed between 2014-2018 will meet the requirement.

  • ABIM to discuss

    • Modifying or eliminating patient related requirements clinically inactive physicians


Time unlimited certificate cohort

Time Unlimited Certificate Cohort

  • ABIM will honor all certifications already issued

  • To be listed as “Meeting MOC Requirements” enroll in MOC program

  • Status can be changed at any time

  • Meet 2 and 5 year MOC point milestones

  • Complete patient safety and patient voice requirement by milestone dates

  • Pass the exam in 10 years


Time unlimited cohort and the exam

Time Unlimited Cohort and the Exam

  • Pass the MOC exam by end of 2023

  • Not passing the MOC exam has no bearing on certification status, only “Meeting MOC Requirements” status

  • Not completing every component of the MOC program requirements results in "Certified, Not Meeting MOC Requirements” listing on ABIM web site


Graduating internal medicine residents

Graduating Internal Medicine Residents

  • 2014 graduating residents must enroll in MOC by March 31 2015

  • Fellows earn 20 MOC points for each eligible year of fellowship training including research (10 in medical knowledge and 10 in practice assessment)


Focused practice in hospital medicine fphm

Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine (FPHM)

  • While the FPHM MOC program is not a subspecialty, it is a variation of Internal Medicine certification

  • Diplomates cannot participate in both the FPHM and Internal Medicine MOC programs simultaneously

  • If diplomates withdraw from FPHM, MOC points will be transferred to IM certificate
