• For CME Providers

    • TMA Accreditation Connection

      The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) have collaborated to simplify the integration of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and accredited CME. The collaboration formed to expand the number and diversity of accredited CME activities that offer ABIM MOC points and to streamline the process for registering CME activities in ABIM's MOC program. ACCME offered a webinar to all CME providers on Oct. 14. A recording of the webinar will be available soon.
