Complete requirements by 12/31/2022 to avoid a change in certification status Expand/Collapse the ABIM alert.

After an extension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MOC requirement deadlines are resuming this year. This means you may have one or more MOC requirements due by 12/31/2022. If you do, your personalized Physician Portal will display red and yellow indicators next to the requirement(s) that need your attention. Be sure to complete any outstanding requirements before the end of year to avoid a change in your certification status.

Participating in ABIM Governance provides a meaningful and rewarding opportunity to join outstanding professional colleagues in service to our patients.

Governance members help define breadth of knowledge of board certified internists and subspecialists, provide perspectives on trends and scope of their discipline, and collaborate with peers to develop fair and relevant assessments. While the majority of ABIM Governance members are practicing physicians certified by ABIM, the inclusion of expert non-physician members—patients, caregivers, and/or inter-professional health care team members—across ABIM's Board of Directors, Council, and Specialty Boards ensures a broader perspective is heard on what board certification should mean for the internal medicine community. This inclusion matters: a variety of stakeholders including patients, hospitals and health systems rely on the ABIM credential to tell them a physician is staying current. All ABIM exam content is created and reviewed by practicing physicians serving on Exam Committees, Item-Writing Task Forces and Self-Assessment Committees, which do not have any non-physician members.

If you have a genuine interest in professional development and standard setting for internal medicine and its subspecialties, please consider sharing this site with a colleague or applying yourself to be appointed to an ABIM board or committee.

ABIM strongly encourages candidates from groups under-represented in medicine, as well as physicians who practice in smaller communities or safety-net institutions, to apply.
