Complete requirements by 12/31/2022 to avoid a change in certification status Expand/Collapse the ABIM alert.

After an extension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MOC requirement deadlines are resuming this year. This means you may have one or more MOC requirements due by 12/31/2022. If you do, your personalized Physician Portal will display red and yellow indicators next to the requirement(s) that need your attention. Be sure to complete any outstanding requirements before the end of year to avoid a change in your certification status.

Credit From Other ABMS Boards

ABIM works closely with other certifying Boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to streamline the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process for Board Certified physicians.

If you are an ABIM diplomate who is dual-boarded by one or more of the other ABMS Member Boards, your self-evaluation requirements can be waived.

If you are eligible to receive this reciprocal credit, you will see a feature in your Physician Portal. Click on this feature to attest that you are currently certified by and participating in the other Board's MOC program.

You will still need to meet the other ABIM MOC requirements: maintaining a valid, unrestricted and unchallenged medical license, passing a secure ABIM MOC assessment, and meeting any other ABIM-specific subspecialty procedural requirements.
