2017 Maintenance of Certification

New Podcast: Despite Changes, ATS 2017 to Remain Rich Source of MOC Points


Chairs of the ATS Education and International Conference committees discuss changes the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics have made to Maintenance of Certification requirements. They focused on how the ATS has responded so that attendees of its International Conference can earn at least as many MOC points during the conference as they have in the past.

Check back for information about Maintenance of Certification and links to pre-tests.

How to Earn MOC at ATS 2017

  • Before ATS 2017: Take the pre-test for each core curriculum session and MOC eligible symposium you want to attend.
  • During ATS 2017: Attend any and all of the MOC symposia
  • After ATS 2017: Take the post-session test. All the tests will be available at the end of the Conference. Please note: audience response during a session does not count at the post-test. Click here to take the post-test.
