Live Maintenance of Certification and Licensure: Improving the quality of health care or a burden to physicians?
In 2000 the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) adopted Maintenance of Certification (MOC) as a framework for all boards to support lifelong learning, self-assessment and practice improvement for their diplomats. Currently the Maintenance of Certification Committee of the ABMS is considering the next iteration of the MOC Standards, expected to be introduced in 2015. In 2010 The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) adopted a three part Maintenance of Licensure (MOL) process which will be implemented by all state medical boards between 2015 and 2020. Currently there are pilot projects in eleven states with the goal of defining the common elements of any MOL process the states may adopt.
