Video Summary
Mr. Kevin Patrick, Continuing Certification Manager at the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM), gave a presentation on the transition from the current Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program to the new Continuing Certification Program. The transition is in response to the American Board of Medical Specialties Vision Commission Report, which recommended that boards move away from high-stakes examinations and replace them with longitudinal assessment components, supported by flexible and relevant practice enhancement modules coupled with Continuing Medical Education (CME) requirements. The ABPM is currently in the process of developing a flexible and relevant Continuing Certification Program that best meets the needs of its diplomate population. As part of the transition, a transitional plan has been created to provide a thoughtful, well-organized, and orderly transition from the current MOC requirements to the new program. Diplomates who activate their ABPM account and register for maintenance and certification by December 31, 2021, will have their MOC Part 2, Part 4, and Patient Safety Course requirements waived for the remainder of the transitional period, which lasts until December 31, 2022. The presentation also introduced the ABPM's Longitudinal Assessment Program Pilot, which is currently available for Diplomates certified in the subspecialty of clinical informatics. Longitudinal assessment involves shorter, more frequent assessments over time, with the aim of helping Diplomates identify knowledge gaps and direct their educational efforts effectively. Immediate feedback and performance comparison with peers are among the features of the pilot program. The full-scale implementation of longitudinal assessment is planned for 2024.
