The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) is introducing a different method for assessing the knowledge of pediatricians as part of Maintenance of Certification (MOC). This proposed testing approach, called MOCA-Peds (Maintenance of Certification Assessment for Pediatrics) will involve shorter, more frequent assessment of pediatricians’ knowledge and will include an additional learning component not typically found in other types of assessments. Test questions will be delivered via computer and mobile device.
The pilot version of the MOCA-Peds will launch in January 2017.
Physicians currently maintaining certification in general pediatrics and who are due to take their exam in 2017 were eligible to register for the pilot.
