The MOC Program is a requirement of Time-Limited Certificate holders, through which re-credentialing is accomplished. The ABPM MOC Program provides diplomates with a self-study, self-assessment, patient and peer evaluation process to improve and maintain clinical knowledge and skills in delivering quality patient care. The MOC Program is designed to facilitate constant improvement in podiatric physicians' abilities, knowledge and skills in the rapidly growing and complex field of podiatric medicine. Through the MOC Program, diplomates are asked to demonstrate and improve their abilities to provide high-quality clinical outcomes for their patients through a responsive, patient-focused, medically current setting.
