Designed by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), the MOC process is an ongoing measurement of six core competencies: patient care, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, system-based practice, practice-based learning, and medical knowledge. Each of the 24 ABMS member boards takes its own approach to MOC, but all follow the ABMS-required four-part process designed to keep certification continuous.
ABEM Maintenance of Certification
