Initial Certification indicates that physicians have met rigorous standards through intensive study, accredited training and evaluation and that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care.

MOC is a professionally determined standard that attests that an internist is staying current in knowledge and practice throughout his/her career.

For more than 75 years, Certification by ABIM has stood for the highest standard in internal medicine and its 20 subspecialties.

Section: Credit for CME

For Most Medical Knowledge Activities

The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania will provide AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for completion of most ABIM Medical Knowledge activities. To receive CME, answer and submit the online survey that will appear when you have successfully completed the self-evaluation activity and indicate the number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ you are claiming from the maximum allowed, as outlined below.

The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania designates each of these enduring materials for a maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ABIM encourages you to claim your CME credit as soon as you successfully complete a Medical Knowledge activity. For products in which you do not claim credit immediately upon completion, a link to the online survey will remain in Claim CME Credit on your ABIM home page.

You must claim CME credit before the posted CME credit expiration date that appears in each activity.

Note: Only ABIM products are eligible for CME credit through this program.
