President, ABR


Current activities of the american board of radiology

ABR Mission Statement:

The Mission of The American Board of Radiology is to serve the public and the medical profession by certifying that its diplomats have acquired, demonstrated, and maintained a requisite standard of knowledge, skill and understanding essential to the practice of radiology, radiation oncology and medical physics.


Current activities of the american board of radiology

Purposes of the Board:

“Ensure the quality of radiological service to the public;

American board of medical specialties abms

American Board of Medical Specialties(ABMS)

  • 1933 Advisory Board for Medical Specialties Created (4 medical boards)

  • 1970 Reorganized as the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS)-23 member boards

  • Today, 24 member boards –

    Immediate Past-President, James Youker, MD (ABR)

  • Mission (in part): To maintain and improve the quality of medical care by assisting the member boards in their efforts to develop and utilize professional and educational standards for the evaluation and certification of physician specialists.


History of moc

History of MOC

  • 1936: Advisory Board reference to “Reregistration at Stipulated Intervals”

  • Early 1940’s: Open discussions regarding issuance of certificates valid for a stated period of time only.

  • 1973: First formal policy regarding recertification was adopted by the ABMS.

  • 1993: ABMS reaffirmed its policy with all 24 member boards required to establish a mechanism to recertify diplomats.

  • March 2000: Agreed that existing or planned programs of recertification would evolve into programs of Maintenance of Certification (MOC).


Abms four components of moc

ABMS: Four Components of MOC

  • Component 1: Professional Standing

    - Validity of the license to practice.

  • Component 2:

    Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment.

    - The requirement to keep current in the field.

  • Component 3: Cognitive Expertise

    - Examination process.

  • Component 4: Practice Performance

    - Assessment of patient care.


Abms six competencies of moc

ABMSSIX COMPETENCIES OF MOC

  • Professionalism

  • Practice-Based Learning/Self Improvement

  • Practice Knowledge

  • Patient Care

  • Interpersonal/Communication Skills

  • System-Based Practice


Radiology s perspective of moc

Radiology’s Perspective of MOC

  • 1998: Concerted efforts initiated by The ABR toward the development of its MOC process.

  • A committee of Medical physicists was appointed to assist The ABR in formulating its MOC program for Radiological Physics.

  • Dec 2001: The ABR convened a meeting to engage each of its sponsoring organizations (ACR, ARRS, AUR, RSNA, ASTRO, AAPM, ARS) in planning MOC.

  • The ABR is responsible for coordinating and administering MOC in radiology.

  • Establishing mechanisms for life long learning will be the responsibility of the other radiology societies.


Radiologic physics perspective of moc

Radiologic Physics Perspective of MOC

  • ABR Physics Recertification Committee:

  • William Hendee (Chair)

  • Edward Chaney

  • Guy Simmons

  • Dan Bourland

  • Tom Payne

  • Don Frey

  • Rod Wimmer

  • E. Russell Ritenour

  • Jon Trueblood


The abr current moc status re radiological physics

The ABR – Current MOC Statusre Radiological Physics

  • Beginning 2002 - certification will be time limited to 10 years.

  • For Radiological Physics this includes:

    • Diagnostic Radiologic Physics

    • Therapeutic Radiologic Physics

    • Medical Nuclear Physics

  • The process is intended to be 100% web based.


Overview draft of the abr moc process for medical physicists

Overview (Draft) of The ABR MOC Processfor Medical Physicists

  • Four Elements:

    • Continuing Education

    • Self-Evaluation

    • Letters of Attestation

    • Web Based Examinations

  • MOC documentation should be assembled continuously beginning with the 1st year after certification but will be submitted in the final year before expiration of certification.

  • Upon positive review, a 10-year extension of The ABR certification will be issued.

To wrap it up

To Wrap it up……

  • MOC is a program for assessing the continuing competency of certified Medical Physicists.

  • The knowledge base and skills necessary to maintain currency in the practice of medical physics are dynamic.

  • Hence, the requirement to engage in self-assessment and provide a mechanism to document continuing competency.

  • The ABR is committed to assisting Medical Physicists in fulfilling the expectations of patients and the public for demonstration of continued competence in the practice of our profession.


On behalf of the american board of radiology and its physics trustees thank you

ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN BOARD OF RADIOLOGY AND ITS PHYSICS TRUSTEESTHANK YOU

To all of the medical physicists who contribute examination questions, serve on ABR committees, serve as oral examiners, and help in so many other ways.

AND REMEMBER

We are always looking for volunteers.
