Welcome to the MOC Marketplace — your gateway to the resources, references and recommendations you need to navigate through the American Board of Radiology (ABR) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process.
Get answers to your MOC-related questions and one-click access to ACR education activities that help fulfill MOC requirements.
In 2000, the 24 specialty boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) agreed to incorporate MOC as an integral component of recertification. Today, each of the specialty boards has implemented an MOC program as evidence of a lifelong commitment to continuous competency in a chosen specialty area.
While each board adapts MOC to address the unique needs of its diplomates, all of the boards — including the American Board of Radiology (ABR) — are guided by a four-part MOC structure:
ABR-certified diplomates who hold a time-limited certificate or a continuous certificate that was issued in 2012 or later with no ‘valid-through’ date are automatically enrolled in MOC. Please visit the ABR website, for more information.
Continuous certification simplifies the recertification process by linking valid certification to the fulfillment of MOC requirements. This eliminates the former 10-year cycle, making ongoing certification now contingent upon satisfaction of the four-part MOC structure:
Diplomates who hold lifetime certificates are not required, but are strongly encouraged, to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to lifelong learning by participating voluntarily.
Visit the ABR for details on certification, recertification and dual certification.
Diplomates should complete their annual MOC attestations between January 1 and March 1 each year. The ABR will check the attestations of all diplomates on March 2 to determine each individual’s MOC public reporting status.
Diplomates only need to attest to the fact that they have met each of the requirements for Parts 1, 2 and 4 of MOC. Detailed data is no longer required. However, participants should keep records of completion for all MOC activities in the event they are randomly selected for an audit. Attestation along with an instructional video are located within your myABRaccount.
