The 2017 ABOG Maintenance of Certification (MOC) session will take place at 4:30 pm today in Hall D, immediately following the ABOG Educational Foundation Lectureship on Patient Safety and Quality Improvement.
Susan Ramin, MD, associate executive director, maintenance of certification, American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, will present this year’s review of ABOG MOC program requirements.
“The value of this session to Annual Meeting attendees is that they will receive an update on the enhancements to the 2017 MOC process,” she said.
Many of the changes came about based on Diplomate input. Starting this year in the MOC process, specialists will have access to all articles including the four subspecialties, and subspecialists will have access to all articles, including those in other subspecialties. There also will be an article completion history report, progress bars on personal pages for article selections and completions, immediate answer performance feedback, limits on article question selection and answer, and user authentication.
This afternoon’s session also includes a section on the collaboration between ABOG and ACOG that allows Diplomates to receive CME credit for MOC work. Additionally, attendees will get a look at the basic structure of the 2017 MOC process and a review of the principles behind the ABOG MOC. Other topics include:
- Results of the ABOG MOC Cycle 1 survey
- Enhancements to MOC Part II: Lifelong Learning & Self-Assessment
- The MOC Pilot Program
- MOC Part III: Assessment of Knowledge, Judgment and Skills
- The five pathways to meet MOC Part IV: Improvement in Medical Practice requirement
