Assessment Options

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:

Available in all specialties

Taken every 10 years
