175.018 Maintenance of Certification


Maintenance of Certification: The maintenance of certification (MOC) process should become substantially more physician friendly, offered at a reasonable cost to physicians and requiring no more than one missed day of patient care per recertification cycle. Time spent preparing for MOC should count as AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Use of ongoing educational processes, such as annual board certification, should be an option for practitioners in all specialties. There should be greater coordination between American Board of Medical Specialties’ boards to ensure that the demands of MOC processes are similar across all specialties (Amended Res. 305-A-07; amended CME Rep. 6-A-17).
