Process provides “evidence of performance in practice”
Shepard R. Hurwitz, MD
There’s no getting around it—earning continuing medical education (CME) credits is a big part of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery’s (ABOS) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process. By obtaining 120 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™—including at least 20 credits from scored and recorded self-assessment examinations (SAE)—in two 3-year cycles, and submitting proof to the ABOS, you satisfy a key aspect of MOC. But there’s more to MOC than CME.
