Maintenance of Certification has been in place for dermatologists board certified by the American Board of Dermatology since 2006. Every certifying and recertifying dermatologist since 2006 has been automatically enrolled in MOC, and 8% of lifetime certificate holders have opted to enroll. Despite the number of MOC enrollees, there remains significant confusion, distrust, skepticism, and uncertainty about the process and value of MOC. This session offers step-by-step instructions to dermatologists who seek additional understanding of what exactly each MOC-enrolled dermatologist must do. Each participant is expected to leave with a personalized MOC plan for the future.
