Every dermatologist is interested in maximizing the quality of care they provide the patient. Every time-limited board certified dermatologist is or will soon be enrolled into the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program, a requirement of all 24 member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties. The MOC program has the goal of improving a dermatologist's quality of care through professional standing, self assessment, periodic examination and practice performance assessment. This session is designed to help audience members design a practical approach to meet current requirements and to familiarize audience members with resources that can help.
