Maintenance of Certification® (MOC®) was developed by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to ensure a continuous cycle of lifelong learning for a physician’s professional development throughout his or her medical career.

American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR)

The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR) sets MOC requirements for board certified physiatrists, and monitors and tracks the MOC process to ensure all standards are being met. All ABPMR diplomates certified in 1993 and beyond must complete all applicable requirements within the 10-year MOC cycle to maintain their certification.

Your Academy

Recognizing that members need an uncomplicated way to navigate and meet the MOC requirements, your Academy (AAPM&R) has developed a series of resources that meet the different requirements of MOC. All Academy tools available to help you meet MOC requirements set forth by ABPMR can be found on ®.
