GI societies call for GI representation in ABIM MOC process: 4 concerns
American Gastroenterological Society, American College of Gastroenterology, American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases joined more than 20 specialty societies to voice concern over the recent American Board of Internal Medicine recertification process changes.
The societies banded together to advocate for the interests of gastroenterologists and hepatologists. The societies discussed issues including:
• Support of the need for certification that must be earned, but concern that the Maintenance of Certification requirements come at the expense of time spent on patient care
• Insufficient opportunities to earn MOC points
• Lack of transparency in the MOC process changes
• Recertification exam does not represent the current state of physician practice
