CME, MOC, & Certificates

MOC points are available through the ABIM and a subset of other Boards under the American Board of Medical Specialties.

MOC from the ABIM

For physician attendees whose certification is through the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points are available for meeting attendance and engagement. Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 15.75 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

To receive ABIM MOC, participants must submit their Symposium Feedback Form, available on the iPlanner, and claim their CME credits for the Symposium by Wednesday, October 12, 2016. Once these steps are completed, ASCO will transmit all information to ABIM on the participant’s behalf.

ABIM MOC points will only be awarded if the Symposium Feedback Form is completed with detailed responses that demonstrate knowledge gained at the Symposium and how it may apply to practice.

MOC from the ABA, ABFM, ABPN, and ABR

Through the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and Association of American Medical Colleges’ (AAMC) joint initiative (ABMS MOC Directory) to create a wide array of practice-relevant MOC Activities.

Note: If a Member Board has not deemed this activity for MOC approval as an accredited CME activity, this activity may count toward an ABMS Member Board’s general CME requirement (only). Please refer directly to your Member Boards’ MOC Part II Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment Program Requirements.

If you wish to receive ABMS MOC Part II, you must claim your CME credit (accessible via the iPlanner) for the Symposium and download your CME certificate. It is the participant’s responsibility to submit this information to ABMS.
