The self-assessment examination is an isolated activity that fulfills the re-credentialing requirement for ABPM Diplomates holding Lifetime Certificates. It is not, however, the same as the Board's MOC Program and may not fulfill third party re-credentialing requirements (e.g. hospitals or managed care companies). Lifetime Certificate holders are advised to review third party contracts carefully. ABPM headquarters is mandated to inform inquiring third party credentialing organizations who seek verification of a Diplomate's status and the method by which the Diplomate has been re-evaluated.
Lifetime Certificate Holders who fail to meet the re-credentialing requirement via self-assessment by the 10th year from their prior re-credentialing date, or who fail to voluntarily enter the MOC Program by the 10th year from their prior re-credentialing date will have their diplomate status revoked.
Next Self-Assessment Exam: October 2-16, 2018

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.
