Two Assessment Options: Choice, Relevance, Convenience

Learn more about ABIM's new MOC assessment option—the Knowledge Check-In—including how it's different from the traditional 10-year MOC exam and when it’s available in your specialty.

The most obvious difference is that the two-year ABIM Knowledge Check-In can be taken in the comfort of your home or workplace. Secondly, it will be a much shorter experience. You do not need to be successful on every Knowledge Check-In to maintain certification (as long as you complete other program requirements). You will also receive performance results much quicker and more detailed feedback about your performance will follow.
