For physicians, there are new maintenance of certification (MOC) requirements. This self-assessment module helps you meet these new standards.

As part of recertification requirements, physicians must now participate in Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC) activities like this one to cultivate a focus on lifelong learning and competency throughout one's profession. This module helps you hone in on clinical and practice management skills that are central to quality patient care and improved outcomes for children and adolescents.

The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) has reviewed the Child and Adolescent MOC Self-Assessment (Online) Module and has approved this program as part of a comprehensive self-assessment program, which is mandated by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) as a necessary component of maintenance of certification. Physicians who participate in this project and meet ABPN completion requirements will receive credit for the Lifelong Learning Self-assessment component of Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

The purpose of the self-assessment is to help you identify and fill knowledge gaps. This module will help test your knowledge, provide feedback on your performance, and provide references to help you fill any knowledge gaps.

Please note: there is no video or presentation in this module, it is a self-assessment tool.
