Meet MOC deadlines in April and May

Two key deadlines—April 15, 2011, and May 1, 2011—are coming soon in the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) Maintenance of Certification™ (MOC) program. Diplomates who plan on taking the recertification exam in 2012, 2015, 2016, or 2017 should be aware of these requirements.

Extended CME and SAE deadline: Apr. 15
Diplomates whose certificates expire in 2017 and who intend to recertify in 2015, 2016, or 2017 must report their 120 AMA PRA Category 1 Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credits™, including at least 20 credits from one or two scored and recorded self-assessment examinations (SAE), to the ABOS no later than April 15, 2011.

According to ABOS Executive Director Shepard R. Hurwitz, MD, the CME and SAE should be for the years 2008–2010.
