ABIM MOC Accreditation

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 25 Medical Knowledge MOC points and Patient Safety MOC credit in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

Please keep in mind the following dates when claiming your MOC points:
Physicians claiming MOC points for their participation in the symposium must complete the online program evaluation by December 20, 2021 in order for the MOC points to count toward any MOC requirements that are due by the end of 2021.

Evaluations received after December 20, 2021 and before March 18, 2022 will continue to be reported to the ABIM and any ABIM Board Certified physician who experienced a negative status change as a direct result of insufficient MOC points will have their status adjusted once the required number of points have been earned.

If you need your credits to count for your 2021 record, please be sure to submit your evaluation by December 20, 2021.  MOC points will not be available for this course after March 18, 2022.
