American Board of Medical Specialties to continue support of this valuable resource
In 2015, as part of its commitment to improve access to relevant maintenance of Certification (MOC) activities, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), in partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), developed an online repository of MOC activities - the ABMS MOC Directory, powered by MedEdPORTAL®.
In 2017, the AAMC will be transitioning to a new technical platform and updating its suite of online products and services. As a result, AAMC will no longer provide the Continuing Education and MOC Directories as a service offering, effective April 1, 2017.
ABMS will continue to support the MOC Directory, which has proved to be a valuable resource for its Member Boards’ diplomates and the continuing professional development (CPD) community. The AAMC and ABMS are working together during this transition and will provide additional information on the future of the MOC Directory in the coming months. However, during and after the transition, ABMS Member Board Diplomates and its partners in the CPD community can be assured that:
o All MOC activities currently indexed in the ABMS MOC Directory will retain their MOC approval status and respective MOC statements.
o All MOC activities will remain in place and are viable for diplomates to access.
o ABMS will continue to invite and accept new MOC activity submissions to insure the MOC Directory remains a valuable resource for the Boards Community.
