ACS CME Dropped for MOC Participants

May 14, 2018
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) recently revised the criteria for trauma-related continuing medical education (CME) credits for ABEM-certified physicians working in ACS-designated trauma centers. Effective immediately, ABEM-certified physicians participating in MOC no longer need to acquire trauma-related CME credits to fulfill ACS trauma center verification requirements. This change applies only to CME requirements housed under the ACS designation. As a result, it is possible that you may have other CME requirements depending on state or local mandates. ABEM encourages you to speak with your administrator for further clarification. 

ABEM will continue to seek opportunites like this to add value to your certification.

Please send any questions you may have to moc@abem.org.
