The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) is continuing to engage physicians to build a new Maintenance of Certification (MOC) assessment pathway that adheres to the high standards of certification, while meeting additional needs of the physician community and the patients they serve.
As part of this ongoing effort, we are distributing a survey to all ABIM Board Certified physicians, seeking their preferences and insights:
- The survey will include information about two alternative MOC assessment pathways developed with physician input and now under discussion: a 5-year pathway and a 2-year pathway. (More details below.)
- We want to hear what pathway and which features best fit your needs.
- You will receive a unique link to the survey via email. You can also access it by signing in to abim.org and clicking “Make your opinion count: Take survey about new MOC assessment.”
- The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete.
Physician input from the survey and from ongoing conversations this fall will help refine the proposed assessment pathways and inform continual enhancements to MOC assessment. ABIM expects to provide more details about the new MOC assessment pathway later this year.
We encourage you to continue to email Dr. Baron and me as questions, suggestions and concerns arise.
