There has been a lot of talk about the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) changing Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements, and what it means for U.S. gastroenterologists. We want to help make sure you’re prepared for these changes and there are several ways you can learn more at DDW 2014.
Since every diplomate is different, we encourage you to use the information on the AGA website to familiarize yourself with the changes. The ABIM website can provide you with more detailed information on the changing requirements and your personalized MOC status report. Log in to ABIM.org to review your MOC status report and see your specific program requirements.
ABIM will have a booth in the DDW 2014 Exhibit Hall (#3008). Stop by to ask your questions and pick up detailed information.
You can also learn more on this topic while attending DDW 2014. Attend the session MOC Now and Tomorrow: Meeting the New MOC Requirements on May 6 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. (room S505) to learn how the changes to MOC affect your certification. Presenters will review ABIM updates and requirements, and help attendees understand how to integrate practice improvement modules and quality improvement into everyday practice. Attendees will also hear about the resources AGA offers to help complete MOC requirements.

- AGA Spring Postgraduate Course: Best Practices at the Bedside: Critical Thinking for Common Conditions, May 3 and 4 in the Arie Crown Theater (pending 10 MOC points)
- SSAT Maintenance of Certification Course: The General Surgeon Performing GI Surgery: Current Management of Benign and Malignant Foregut Diseases, May 3, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in room S504 (7 MOC points)
