Important Deadlines from ABIM for MOC

Please complete your ACG CME evaluation and ABIM MOC assessment soon. ABIM Board Certified physicians need to complete their MOC activities by December 31, 2016 in order for the MOC points to count toward any MOC requirements that are due by the end of the year.

ABIM will continue to accept participant completion data until March 1, 2017.

Any ABIM Board Certified physician who experiences a negative status change as a direct result of insufficient MOC points will have their status adjusted once the required number of points have been earned. No ABIM MOC credit may be awarded after March 1, 2017 for any ACG 2016 CME activity.
