Diplomates of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) who wish to take the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) recertification exam in March or April 2015 must apply for the exam by May 1, 2014. The application is available on the ABOS website at www.abos.org
Those who miss the May 1, 2014, deadline have until May 15, 2014, to submit their applications; a $350 late fee will be assessed.
Diplomates whose certification expires in 2015 who do not meet all MOC requirements and/or do not pass the recertifying examination will lose their board certification after December 31, 2015, and will need to reapply to regain certification.
