Assessment Options: Choice, Relevance, Convenience
ABIM has been a leader in creating rigorous medical assessments for licensed physicians since it was established in 1936. We now offer not only our own assessments but have partnered with specialty societies to increase the options to meet ABIM MOC assessment requirements for physicians.
Please see an important update about MOC requirement deadline extensions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Learn more about all your options to meet your MOC assessment requirement:
Traditional ABIM 10-Year MOC Exam
Available in all specialties
Taken every 10 years
ABIM Knowledge Check-In 2-Year MOC Assessment
Physicians can take this assessment online (at home or office) or in a test center
Taken every 2 years
NOTE: The Knowledge Check-In will no longer be offered after 2021 as we transition to the longitudinal assessment. The traditional, 10-year MOC exam will continue as an option beyond 2021.
Collaborative Maintenance Pathway (CMP)
Assessments created in collaboration with medical societies
Available in limited specialties
Taken on various timetables
ABIM is currently working on developing a Longitudinal Assessment option and our goal is to launch in 2022.
