MOC Credit for CME Activities

Another way to receive Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (Part 2) points for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is by participating in continuing medical education (CME) activities approved by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). You might be able to earn credit for the same CME activities that you are already participating in to meet licensure and other professional obligations.

Although MOC Part 2 points and CME credits often overlap, note that they are not the same. The standards set by the ABP and the ACCME are different, so not all activities eligible for CME credit are also eligible for MOC credit. Although the ABP assigns MOC point values for ABP-approved activities, external CME providers (organizations other than the ABP) determine the evaluation mechanisms and passing standards for CME activities. When an activity is eligible for both types of credit, the MOC point value of an activity might not equal the amount of CME credit hours.

How to Earn MOC Credit for CME Activities

Within 30 days after you finish a CME activity that is approved for ABP’s MOC Part 2 credit, your Part 2 points will appear automatically in your ABP Portfolio, so that you receive both CME and MOC Part 2 credit. CME providers are responsible for reporting your completion to the ABP within 30 days.

Visit ACCME’s CME Finder to find CME activities that have been approved for MOC Part 2 credit. In the tool, you can specify a subspecialty by clicking on the “+ABP” icon to the left. This may help you find more CME opportunities that are relevant to your specific practice.
