Participating in Maintenance of Certification (MOC) demonstrates a commitment to higher standards in the practice of ophthalmology. In addition to the benefits of assessing current skills and staying up to date in practice, below are some other ways to maximize your participation in MOC.
Promote Your Certification Status
You are invited to download a personalized MOC Participation web badge for your practice website or social media profiles. Each badge links directly to your ABO certification verification page.
Generate your badge using the Public Profile Builder on your MOC Status Page. Creating a public profile is optional and can help prospective patients find your practice information. On the Public Profile, you will have the option to add a photo, educational background, practice contact information, and your website address.
Claim CME Credit for MOC
The American Medical Association (AMA) will reward the work diplomates do to maintain ABO certification with up to 60 AMA PRA Category 1™ credits upon completion of the 10-year cycle. To claim these credits, you must complete the online form and submit a copy of your certificate or MOC completion letter from the ABO. Fees assessed by the AMA may apply.
