Keith J. Mann, MD, M.Ed, will become Vice President of Continuing Certification at the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), effective Jan. 1, 2019, the ABP has announced. He is ABP certified in general pediatrics and is meeting the requirements of maintenance of certification.

Dr. Mann will succeed Virginia Moyer, MD, MPH, who will retire on Dec. 31, 2018. He may begin transitioning into his responsibilities in the fall of 2018.

In his role as Vice President of Continuing Certification, he will lead the continued development and implementation of the ABP’s continuing certification program (also known as maintenance of certification, or MOC). He provides expertise in evidence-based medicine, education, health care quality and patient safety.

Currently, Dr. Mann is Chief Medical Quality and Safety Officer and Associate Executive Medical Director at Children’s Mercy Kansas City in Kansas City, MO. Additionally, he is professor of pediatrics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine.

He has served on the ABP’s Maintenance of Certification Committee since 2013 and has chaired that committee since 2016.  He has been a volunteer on various ABP committees for the past 15 years.

Dr. Mann graduated from New Jersey Medical School in Newark, N.J. He completed his residency and fellowship in internal medicine and pediatrics at the Christiana Care Health System/AI DuPont Hospital for Children. He was Chief Resident, Pediatrics at Thomas Jefferson University/AI DuPont Hospital for Children. He earned a master’s degree in education from the University of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, OH.

“We will sorely miss Dr. Moyer’s outstanding leadership at the ABP and throughout the pediatric community,” says David G. Nichols, MD, MBA, President and CEO of the ABP. “However, we are looking forward to new ideas and perspectives that Dr. Mann will bring to our leadership team.”
