Maintenance of Certification

Annual Meeting attendees can earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and American Board of Pediatrics (ABP).

MOC from the ABIM

For physician attendees whose certification is through the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points are available for meeting attendance and engagement. Successful completion of this continuing medical education (CME) activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn 38.75 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) MOC program.  Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.  It is the CME activity providers’ responsibility to submit participant completion information to Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

To receive ABIM MOC, participants must submit their Meeting Feedback Form by July 9, 2018, available on the iPlanner, and claim their CME credits for the meeting. Once these steps are completed, ASCO will transmit all information to ABIM on the participant’s behalf.

ABIM MOC points will only be awarded if the Meeting Feedback Form is completed with detailed responses that demonstrate knowledge gained at the Meeting and how it may apply to practice.

MOC from the ABP

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the activity, with individual assessments of the participant and feedback to the participant, enables the participant to earn up to 14.5 MOC points in the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.  It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education for the purpose of granting ABP MOC credit.
