Subspecialty MOC

Subspecialty Certification: Exam Requirement for MOC

If you are certified in an ABPMR subspecialty, there is a separate examination required to maintain your subspecialty certification. This is the only part of the ABPMR MOC Program that doesn’t have reciprocity — meaning that if you meet the requirements for MOC Parts I, II, and IV for primary certification, those activities also count for maintaining your subspecialty certification(s). The only additional step is to take and pass the subspecialty MOC Examination.
