Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

AKH collaborates with Joint Providers to identify accredited CME activities to register in ABIM’s MOC program. AKH will also consider collaboration with the ABMS MOC Member Board as well as those of other Medical Specialty Boards that seek outside sources for their diplomats.
