New Options For Making the Most of MOC, Continuing Education

Maintenance of Certification (MOC) has been a hot-button issue and a top priority for the ACC since the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) changed its MOC requirements in 2014. In a recent leadership page published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC), ACC President C. Michael Valentine, MD, FACC, former ACC President Richard A. Chazal, MD, MACC, and ACC Executive Vice President William J. Oetgen, MD, MBA, FACC, highlight the many ways the College has been successful in operationalizing its three MOC goals, including being a trusted source of MOC information for its members; creating and maintaining a robust selection of educational opportunities for members choosing to maintain their ABIM certification; and engaging with ABIM in efforts to change and improve the MOC process. As part of these ongoing efforts, the College has announced a plan to move forward with the creation of two variations of ACCSAP to meet the needs of members seeking an alternative to ABIM, as well as those participating in ABIM’s MOC process.
