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.

Section: Credit for CME


ABIM is working toward recognizing most forms of CME as fulfilling ABIM's MOC expectations for knowledge self-assessment. We are interested in finding ways to recognize meaningful clinical work that you do in your practices to earn CME points, and we're particularly interested in recognizing CME activities for which there is evidence that they drive learning and/or change practice.

The activities in this section have been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through joint providership of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and ABIM. The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania is accredited by ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
