ABMS Survey on MOC Concerns (closes Fri., May 11 at midnight)

May 10, 2018

The New Hampshire Medical Society has heard your concerns about Maintenance of Certification (MOC) urging substantial changes in the scope, costs and processes for national specialty board recertification by pressing for changes through the American Medical Association and before the New Hampshire legislature.

Over the last year, our polling across the Granite State indicates that over 90 percent of New Hampshire physicians believe that MOC does not have a meaningful impact on either your own professional development, or your practice, or the wellbeing of your patients.

Here is another way to provide feedback, if you have not already done so. 

Please respond the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) survey to provide input in their vision initiative before tomorrow midnight, Friday, May 11th at https://visioninitiative.org/comment/
The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

Thank you.


The Vision Initiative will foster an inclusive, open, collaborative and candid dialogue across stakeholder groups, to:

  • Consider a range of principles, frameworks and program models for continuing board certification

  • Be responsive to the needs of those who rely on the credential: patients, hospitals, and medical practices

  • Be relevant, meaningful and of value to physicians

  • Create meaningful recommendations for ABMS and its Member Boards
