    American Board of Medical Specialties to continue support of this valuable resource

    In 2015, as part of its commitment to improve access to relevant maintenance of Certification (MOC) activities, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), in partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), developed an online repository of MOC activities - the ABMS MOC Directory, powered by MedEdPORTAL®.

    In 2017, the AAMC will be transitioning to a new technical platform and updating its suite of online products and services. As a result, AAMC will no longer provide the Continuing Education and MOC Directories as a service offering, effective April 1, 2017.

    ABMS will continue to support the MOC Directory, which has proved to be a valuable resource for its Member Boards’ diplomates and the continuing professional development (CPD) community. The AAMC and ABMS are working together during this transition and will provide additional information on the future of the MOC Directory in the coming months. However, during and after the transition, ABMS Member Board Diplomates and its partners in the CPD community can be assured that:

    o All MOC activities currently indexed in the ABMS MOC Directory will retain their MOC approval status and respective MOC statements.
    o All MOC activities will remain in place and are viable for diplomates to access.
    o ABMS will continue to invite and accept new MOC activity submissions to insure the MOC Directory remains a valuable resource for the Boards Community.

    For more information regarding the MOC Directory transition, please contact John Nash, Operations Manager, MedEdPORTAL at jnash@aamc.org or Susie Flynn, ABMS Director, Academic Services at sflynn@abms.org.

    CME organizations that are not yet prepared or able to become Sponsors in the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program™ (Portfolio Program) can explore program participation on a trial basis as part of the Portfolio Program Pre-Sponsor Pilot initiative. This Pilot allows organizations to experience the benefits that Portfolio Program sponsorship offers their physicians and their organization. “Pre-Sponsors” have 12-month access to Portfolio Program resources to help foster an environment where physician involvement in quality/performance/practice improvement efforts (QI/PI) and MOC is supported. They can help their physicians earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) credit for participating in approved efforts that align with organizational priorities such as communication, efficiency, patient safety, and transition of care. To find out more about becoming a Portfolio Program Pre-Sponsor, please contact Teena Nelson, Portfolio Program Manager, at tnelson@abms.org
