The ACCME is pleased to announce that CME providers can now register two new activity types, Manuscript Review and Learning from Teaching, for American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points through ACCME’s Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS). Both have been added to the list of eligible activity types to offer more flexibility and diversity for CME providers and physicians. Activities are eligible for registration if they meet the specific requirements of ABIM. For the complete list of eligible activity types, see the table below and this FAQ.

This addition expands on the efforts ABIM and the ACCME first announced in 2015 to create a more streamlined and flexible CME for MOC process. By spring 2017, ABIM and ACCME plan to recognize even more accredited CME. In addition to Medical Knowledge activities, physicians will be able to earn MOC points for Practice Assessment activities and blended activities that earn both Medical Knowledge and Practice Assessment MOC points. For more information, updates, and links to resources, visit our CME that Counts for ABIM MOC webpage.
