Research in Progress

A Study of Studying

To better understand how physicians prepare for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) examination, ABIM researchers conducted semi-structured interviews with primary care physicians (both general internists and family physicians) who had recently completed their respective board’s MOC examination.

Physicians were queried about exam preparation methods, time and other costs associated with preparation, and if studying led to changes in their practice, among other things.

The study is also seeking to investigate how knowledge gained through this process impacts quality and efficiency of patient care.
