Value of MOC

The MOC program was created with input from thousands of physicians across the country. It provides doctors with a pathway to know that they are staying current in the medical knowledge they use to treat patients and make important care decisions daily.

The program has evolved to include new assessment options and an increased recognition of the work doctors do every day. ABIM also continuously collaborates with doctors to increase the relevance of exams.

There is compelling evidence showing that MOC improves value of care without sacrificing quality and that board certified physicians command higher salaries.
