Some ABIM MOC rules put off

Share this:


The American Board of Internal Medicine’s board unanimously voted to extend a February 2015 decision to suspend the Practice Assessment, Patient Voice and Patient Safety requirements for Maintenance of Certification an extra year, through the end of 2018, reports Becker’s Hospital Review.

“This means no internist will have their {ABIM} certification status changed for incomplete Practice Assessment, Patient Voice or Patient Safety activities through Dec. 31, 2018. To maintain certification status, internists are still required to take and pass an exam every 10 years, earn 100 MOC points every five years and complete an MOC activity every two years,” Becker’s reported.

Many physicians hate the ABIM’s MOC rules; they see them as ¬†too intrusive and time-consuming.
