Frequently Asked Questions
How does ABPM know I earned MOC Credits through ACOEM?
Note that ABPM recently released updates to the Board's online portal which will alter the way Diplomates document MOC progress towards recertification. Those wishing to claim ABPM MOC credit may now do so via the ABPM Physician Portal. All Diplomates are required to self-report credits via the attestation feature.
How do I track my MOC Credits?
The ABPM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Physician Portal allows you to track your activities and view the LLSA/MOC activities you have completed toward meeting the Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment requirement.
Can ACOEM help me prepare for the certification and Maintenance of Certification exam?
