MOC Part 4 Section of Website Revamped for Easier Use

Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 13:15

The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) has given the Quality Improvement (MOC Part 4) section of its website a face-lift to make it easier for board-certified pediatricians to explore the many ways to complete their MOC Part 4 requirements. For pediatricians with MOC cycles ending in 2018, the renewal is especially timely.

“Now pediatricians can learn more about their Part 4 options without logging into their ABP Portfolio,” says Virginia Moyer, MD, MPH, Vice President, Maintenance of Certification and Quality at the ABP. “The overview can help them see how improvement work in all professional activities – clinical, research, education, and even administration – can lead to MOC Part 4 credit, as long as their work is designed to improve the health of children. Most pediatricians can earn credit for work they are already doing.”

The updated pages on the site include:

Because most quality improvement projects take several months to complete, especially when they are integrated into a pediatrician’s daily work, the ABP recommends getting started no later than the third or fourth year of a five-year-cycle, if not sooner.

Additionally, the ABP does not charge for ABP-developed Performance Improvement Modules (PIMS), providing a way to earn MOC Part 4 credit without any additional cost.
