ABIM and the future of maintaining certification


What should you do now?

All current ABIM MOC program requirements and policies remain in effect while the new longitudinal assessment is being developed and ABIM will communicate any program changes as well as more details on the program in advance of implementation. If you have an assessment due in 2020 or 2021, you can choose from the assessment options currently available in your discipline.

Registration for all 2020 MOC assessments opened December 1, 2019. Be sure to check ABIM’s website to see exam dates – and registration dates – for FPHM and any other certificates you are maintaining.

You can also find all of your MOC program requirements and deadlines by signing into your Physician Portal at
