By Jennie McKee

If your board certification expires in 2010, you’re among the first group of Diplomates to go through the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery’s (ABOS) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process for board recertification. The goal of this new program is to encourage ongoing professional improvement among orthopaedic surgeons.

Although 2010 is still three years away, it’s not too early to plan out exactly how you intend to meet the program requirements. For an overview of the requirements, the deadlines, and other key aspects of MOC, read on. (Note: This information is specific to the class of 2010; future articles in AAOS Now will cover requirements for other classes. The ABOS has the best and most authoritative information on MOC.)
