ABIM to Offer New MOC Option Based on Feedback
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) will begin offering a new Maintenance of Certification (MOC) assessment option in January 2018. The new option will:
  • Take the form of shorter assessments that doctors can choose to take on their personal or office computer—with appropriate identity verification and security—more frequently than every 10 years but no more than annually;
  • Provide feedback on important knowledge gap areas so physicians can better plan their learning to stay current in knowledge and practice; and
  • Allow physicians who engage in and perform well on these shorter assessments to test out of the current assessment taken every 10 years
Those who meet a performance standard on shorter assessments will not need to take the 10-year exam again to remain certified. ABIM’s assessment taken every 10 years will remain available as an option, and both assessments will reflect the input ABIM has received from a diverse range of physicians and stakeholders over the past year. 
 
IDSA has worked diligently over the past several years with other internal medicine societies to share our concerns about assessments with ABIM. 
 
The full announcement about the new MOC Option can be found here.
