MOC-IconABIM approves CME for MOC points

 After months of working with ABIM to improve the MOC process, ACG’s message to ABIM that MOC needed to be “simpler, less intrusive, and less expensive,” is closer to reality.

Today, ABIM notified diplomates that CME from an approved provider now qualifies for MOC credit.  While there is more to do to fix the onerous MOC process, this is a helpful step forward.

Since 2006, the College has been offering MOC resources.  Over the past few years, we’ve expanded our offerings to meet the growing needs of our members.

ACG heard loud and clear from its members the MOC process was too burdensome and complicated. We have advocated at the ABIM for some time to create a mechanism that allows busy practicing clinicians to earn credit for the things they are already doing to assure that they are practicing high quality medicine.

Today’s announced change is consistent with this objective.  ACG has already started integrating MOC credit with existing CME programs, including at the ACG Annual Postgraduate Course.  Check out the ACG website,, for a list of MOC resources.
