Hospital Medicine, Focused Practice
The Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine (FPHM) MOC program assesses, recognizes and sets standards for the specific knowledge, skills and attitudes of general internists who focus their practice in the care of hospitalized patients.
While the FPHM MOC program is not a subspecialty, it is a variation of Internal Medicine certification. Diplomates cannot participate in both the FPHM and Internal Medicine MOC programs simultaneously.
Completion of the program identifies diplomates as ABIM Board Certified in Internal Medicine with a Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine. The certificate will remain valid as long as you continue to participate in Maintenance of Certification (MOC).
