Webinar Available—Achieving Deemed Status: A Way Forward for MOC

The webinar Achieving Deemed Status: A Way Forward for MOC, held on April 10, 2015, showcases the collaborative relationship between the American Board of Radiology (ABR) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). ABR Executive Director Valerie P. Jackson, MD, and ACR Chief Executive Officer William T. Thorwarth Jr., MD, discuss the ABR’s program granting deemed status to organizations providing continuing professional development activity. This program allows Societies to create and deploy MOC activities efficiently and easily.

This webinar came about as a result of the 2014 Specialty Society – Board Summit, which focused on ways that Member Boards and Societies could work together to assure that physicians have access to high quality learning and improvement activities. One idea that generated a high degree of interest was an approach that Member Boards could use to expedite recognition of Society-sponsored programs and services.
