Initial board certification and the ABMS Program for Maintenance of Certification (ABMS MOC®) advance the professional standards for physicians certified by one of the 24 ABMS Member Boards.
Through our many programs and initiatives, we support opportunities for physicians to learn and achieve better patient care.
More than 900,000 physicians are board certified by an ABMS Member Board. A variety of resources are available to help check a physician’s certification.
The Continuing Certification Directory helps diplomates find MOC-approved CME activities and helps CME providers submit activities.
