How to Claim CME and MOC Credits


How to claim CME Credits?

Attendees of ACG 2018 educational activities may claim CME in one of two ways: Either complete your evaluation and print your certificate anytime from your own computer (website opens on October 5), OR visit the CME kiosks in the Broad Street Lobby near Registration where you can complete your evaluation and print your CME certificate, or email yourself a copy of the certificate to print later. PLEASE NOTE: the number of CME credits you claim will be the number of MOC points you are able to claim. Once you submit for CME credits, this total CANNOT BE ADJUSTED.

How do I claim ABIM MOC Points?

Participants are asked to reflect on and summarize what they have learned and indicate what they will do differently, stop doing, or keep doing in their practice with more confidence relative to identified key learning objectives from the course. A minimum of 2-3 sentences is required for an acceptable submission. All assessments are reviewed. Awarded MOC points will be removed if responses do not meet the passing standard.

Note: To claim your MOC points, you will need to provide your 6-digit ABIM ID number and your date of birth. You may visit www.abim.org to look up your ABIM ID number.

AFTER completing your CME evaluation and submitting for CME credits for an individual course, the link for ABIM MOC points will be available for that course. Click on the link in the MOC column to open your MOC evaluation form. Answer the MOC question(s) and then enter in your name, ABIM ID number, and date of birth. You will then be able to submit for MOC points. It may take 2-3 days to see your MOC points on your ABIM account.

What is the deadline to claim CME Credits?

CME credits will be available until October 10, 2021.

What is the deadline to claim MOC Points?

ABIM Board Certified physicians with a 2018 year-end MOC deadline will need to complete their MOC submission by December 31, 2018 in order for the MOC points to count for 2018. No MOC credit will be awarded after March 1, 2019 for these activities..
