How to Claim CME and MOC Credits


How to claim CME Credits?

Claim CME for ACG 2020 educational activities through the meeting evaluation website (opens on October 23). Complete each course evaluation and print your certificate. 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 MOC Points?

ACG courses that offer MOC (as noted below) will award MOC credit in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) and American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) MOC programs.

ABIM
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. 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.

ABP
AFTER completing your CME evaluation and submitting for CME credits for an individual course, ABP MOC can be claimed by emailing education@gi.org to obtain the required forms for completion. ABP diplomates can NOT use the MOC link on the evaluation site to claim 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.

What is the deadline to claim CME Credits?

The evaluation site will remain open to claim CME and obtain a certificate until October 23, 2023.

What is the deadline to claim MOC Points?

ABIM
ABIM Board Certified physicians with a 2020 year-end MOC deadline will need to complete their MOC submission by December 31, 2020 in order for the MOC points to count for 2020. No MOC credit will be awarded after March 1, 2021 for these activities.

ABP
ABP should claim their MOC for these activities by December 1. All ABP learner completion data should be submitted within 30 days of activity completion.
