Your Academy Applauds ABPMR’s Recent MOC Announcement

Apr 22, 2016

The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR) recently announced their involvement in the new American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) MOC Assessment Initiative.  If successful, this may result in a change to the ABPMR Maintenance of Certification® (MOC®) Part III requirement. Your Academy applauds the ABPMR for their commitment to exploring new assessment and learning approaches. While the ABPMR ultimately decides upon any changes to MOC, your Academy – the voice representing roughly 7,000 board-certified physiatrists will continue to advocate on your behalf for more meaningful and relevant MOC requirements that also align with the future of health care. The Academy believes this recent announcement is a positive step for all ABPMR-certified physiatrists.
