  • Physicians must demonstrate active collaboration in QI project design and/or implementation, such as team meetings, data analysis, implementation training, etc.

"MOC is a multi-faceted program that includes knowledge and continuous improvement," said Christine Cassel, MD, President and CEO of the American Board of Internal Medicine. "We look for opportunities to reduce the administrative burden for physicians, but still ensure that they are meeting our high standards of self evaluation and quality improvement."
