Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is an ongoing recertification system for  U.S. physicians — including dermatologists — that emphasizes continuous improvement and lifelong continuing professional development (CPD) to assure that physicians deliver the highest-quality patient care throughout their careers.

Under the American Board of Dermatology’s  MOC 10-year cycle system, board-certified dermatologists must complete relevant continuing medical education (CME) activities, self-assessments, practice/quality improvement activities such as performance improvement, and pass the recertification examination.
