ABIM’S Commitment to Health Equity
ABIM is actively monitoring news around COVID-19 and will post regular updates about any changes to scheduled assessments or other impacts to MOC related activities.
Scheduled for an assessment this year? ABIM is working with Pearson VUE to ensure your safety throughout your exam day. Learn more about what to expect at test centers.
Please follow the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the most up-to-date information on the virus.
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.
Taking Over Twitter
September is Hispanic Heritage Month, a time to celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. We also recognize the challenges that the community faces.
For the month of September on ABIM’s Twitter account, we will be featuring quotes and facts about the Hispanic and Latino community and we would like to invite you to participate by writing a tweet in response to one of the framing questions below!
Please send your draft tweet to Kelly Rand at KRand@abim.org and include your Twitter handle and a headshot in your response if you’d like to be highlighted and tagged! Remember, tweets cannot be more than 280 characters long.
