Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Center

As described by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), MOC is a four-part process of lifelong learning and competency in a specialty/subspecialty that includes measurement against six core competencies: professionalism, patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, and systems-based practice. There are 24 medical specialties for board certified physicians, including internal medicine, anesthesiology, and pediatrics, that are part of the ABMS Member Boards and participate in the ABMS MOC® program.1
