Credit for MOC Parts 2 and 4 may be obtained from a select group of other organizations with similar objectives as the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), as shown below.
When you receive MOC credit from other organizations, you must still comply with other ABP MOC requirements — a valid, unrestricted medical license, a successful MOC exam when it is due, and paid MOC enrollment fees — to maintain your ABP certification.
In addition, it is your responsibility to notify ABP — by sending us a completed attestation form — to ensure that we recognize your MOC Part 2 or 4 activities with reciprocal organizations.
Request reciprocal credit from the MOC Dashboard page in your ABP Portfolio. Please allow two weeks for processing.
