ABMS Call for Systems-based Practice and Interpersonal and Communication Skills MOC Activities

As part of its commitment to improve the quality of health care through the integration of the American Board of Medical Specialties/Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ABMS/ACGME) Core Competencies into the ABMS Program for Maintenance of Certification (ABMS MOC®), ABMS invites all health care organizations and stakeholders to participate in the second ABMS Call for MOC Activities focused on System-based Practice and Interpersonal and Communication in support of the ABMS Program for MOC Part II: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment and Part IV: Improvement in Medical Practice.

This ABMS Call for System-based Practice and Interpersonal and Communication Skills MOC Activities provides organizations the unique opportunity to submit activities for approval by the Member Boards Programs for MOC. The ABMS Call for MOC Activities provides a road map to spread knowledge, recognition, and the widespread adoption of quality, relevant MOC activities across the Member Boards' Community. Activities meeting the approval of Member Boards Programs for MOC will transform health care by advancing System-based Practices and improving interpersonal and communication skills.
