Earning MOC Points
The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program requires that you earn some MOC points every two years to be reported as participating in MOC. To be reported as certified, you must earn 100 points every five years, 20 of which must be medical knowledge (the points you earn every two years count toward your 100 points) and pass the MOC exam in your specialty within 10 years of when you last passed it.
Practice Assessment, Patient Voice and Patient Safety are not required through 2018 but completing activities in these areas still earns you MOC points.
