The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (the Board) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (the College) have created the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 4 modules together for Practice Performance/Self-Assessment.
Each MOC Part 4 module includes information on current recommendations and best practices along with a self-assessment of one's practice to ascertain if current recommendations are in place. Physicians are prompted to review their own charts for the diagnoses or conditions covered in the module. Physicians do not keep a case list, enter patient-specific information, or send in charts for anyone to review. Six months after the chart review has been submitted, an email is sent prompting the physician to complete a follow-up on impact on practice. Physicians participating in MOC must complete 5 separate modules in the 6-year cycle. Subspecialists must complete 3 modules from their respective subspecialty and 2 modules from the general practice categories. A physician can only work on 1 module per year; however, you can preview all modules at anytime.
The MOC Part 4 modules are available at http://moc.acog.org. Physicians must first register annually for MOC on the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology website (www.abog.org). Following MOC registration, a physician automatically has access to the Part 4 modules at http://moc.acog.org.
