The American Society of Dermatopathology

Maintenance of Certification/Continuing Certification

In 2000, the 24 member boards of American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) agreed to evolve their recertification programs to one of continuous professional development – ABMS Maintenance of Certification® (ABMS MOC®). ABMS MOC assures that the physician is committed to lifelong learning and competency by requiring ongoing measurement of the six general competencies identified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the ABMS: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
