ConCert Scores Available Online
If you are currently certified, or if you are a former diplomate regaining certification by making up missed requirements, you can see your 2014 ConCert™ score by signing in to ABEM MOC Online using your ABEM user ID and password. When you reach your MOC Online Personal Page, click the orange button labeled "View Your ABEM MOC Requirements and Status." If you passed the examination, the ConCert™ requirement and status grid will show that you have met the requirement. Click on the green "ConCert Examination" action button within the ConCert™ requirement grid. You can select "View Examination Score History" to see your numeric score.
While you are in your Requirements and Status page, view your other current MOC requirements to make sure they have been met. If your certificate expires in 2014, you must have met all your MOC requirements by the end of 2014 to renew your certification.
The ConCert™ scores were mailed Thursday, October 23, 2014. This is the official release date for the examination results. The packet includes a letter confirming that you passed or did not pass the examination and outlining your next steps to maintain or regain certification. You will also receive your score report, the keyword report, and examination FAQs.
Note to credentialers: 2013 was the first year in which currently certified physicians do not automatically renew certification by passing the ConCert™ examination. At the end of the year in which their certificate expires, physicians receive new certification dates if they have met all of their ABEM MOC requirements. This means that physicians can pass the ConCert™ examination and still lose certification when their current certificate expires.
Previously certified physicians (former diplomates) who met a portion of their ABEM MOC requirements while they were certified can regain certification by making up missed requirements. For those physicians, ABEM issues a new certification date as soon as all missed requirements have been met. For some, passing the ConCert™ examination was the final requirement they needed to meet, and therefore they have new certification dates.
ABEM does not verify examination pass/fail information to anyone other than the physician who took the ConCert™ examination without a signed release from the physician.
