For the first time since it launched its maintenance of certification (MOC) program in 1990, the ABIM has taken a critical look at the program and has made profound changes. Physician feedback, requesting more relevance and convenience in the experience, has been heard. The result is the Knowledge Check-In, a new online MOC Part 3 assessment.
Remember: You can’t take the Knowledge Check-In if your certification lapses. If you fail a Knowledge Check-In two times in a row, you must take the proctored exam the following year.
Did you just recently certify? It’s a good plan to take the Knowledge Check-In 7–8 years after your initial certification, giving yourself a 2-year cushion to retake it.
