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.

Multi-Specialty MOC Portfolio Program

The Multi-Specialty MOC Portfolio Approval Program (MOC Portfolio Program) offers organizations with multiple well-designed quality improvement efforts involving physicians across multiple disciplines a streamlined approach to grant MOC points to physicians who are involved in those improvement efforts.

The MOC Portfolio Program website was created by participating ABMS boards to provide sponsor organizations with information about program requirements and policies, and physicians with information about participating sponsor organizations and Boards.

For Physicians

If you are an ABIM Board Certified physician who has participated in a quality improvement effort at an Approved Portfolio Sponsor organization, you may be eligible to earn MOC points. Note:

  • The Portfolio Sponsor will notify ABIM of your participation.
  • 20 Self-Evaluation of Practice Assessment points will appear in your Self-Evaluation Activity Report for the “MOC Portfolio Program” within 14 business days of receipt of this information from the Approved Portfolio Sponsor.
  • Contact the Portfolio Sponsor directly with questions or disputes about qualifying projects.

For Sponsors

The MOC Portfolio Program website details the process for submitting your organization's quality improvement program. For more information about how to become an Approved Portfolio Sponsor, please contact the program staff.
