Initial Certification indicates that physicians have met rigorous standards through intensive study, accredited training and evaluation and that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care.

MOC is a professionally determined standard that attests that an internist is staying current in knowledge and practice throughout his/her career.

For more than 75 years, Certification by ABIM has stood for the highest standard in internal medicine and its 20 subspecialties.

Journal Articles by Topic

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) compiles relevant research from across the medical community in this library on several topics related to physician knowledge, assessment in training, board certification, ongoing certification, and physician professionalism.

We update this robust resource of evidence from several top-tier medical journals regularly, but it is not a comprehensive list. The American Board of Medical Specialties (of which ABIM is a member board) has additional resources in their Continuing Certification Reference Center, a dynamic database of literature relevant to board certification and Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

We welcome your suggestions about this section of our site. Note: Some articles might require a subscription to the publication in order to view.
