Maintenance of Certification Requirements (2012)
ABAM Announces New Maintenance of Certification Requirements. The ABAM MOC program is an American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) requirement that ABAM has adopted for its ABAM Diplomates. It is an important step toward meeting the ABMS criteria for recognition of addiction medicine.
All Diplomates are required to participate annually in Part I, in order to retain ABAM Diplomate status. Diplomates holding Time-Limited Certificates must successfully complete all 4 parts of the Program during the 10 year MOC cycle. Diplomates holding Time-Unlimited Certificates are encouraged but not required to participate in Parts II, III and IV.
For Time-Limited Diplomates who wish to complete their maintenance of certification requirements, please [TL-MOC Form Part I]
For Time-Unlimited Diplomates who wish to complete their maintenance of certification requirements, please [TUL-MOC Form Part I].
