Earn MOC Points, CME Credits at ATS 2023

The ATS Education and the International Conference Committees have collaborated on a plan where eleven Scientific Symposia, four Clinical Year in Review, one Postgraduate course, and the Adult and Pediatric Core Curriculum symposia are eligible for ABIM or ABP MOC points.  The symposia will cover adult pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine as well as pediatric pulmonary and sleep medicine.

How to Earn MOC at ATS 2023

To claim MOC you must complete the requirements for CME as all MOC sessions are also CME certified and do the following:

Before ATS 2023: Take the pre-test for each MOC eligible symposium you want to attend.

During ATS 2023: Attend any or all of the MOC symposia you are interested in. Advance registration is only required for the Postgraduate course.

After ATS 2023:

Step 1. Follow the steps to claim CME credit. In order to claim your CME credits, you will need to complete an evaluation for each session attended. This evaluation is not the Post-Test exam that must be completed and passed in order to claim MOC credit.

Step 2. Take and pass the knowledge-based post-test. Post-tests for all MOC-eligible symposia will be available at the close of the conference until 45 days after the conference. Note: Submitting answers through the audience response system during a session does not count as completing the post-test. Also, completing to steps to claim just the CME credits will not automatically grant you MOC points. You must complete the CME session evaluation AND pass the MOC post-test to earn MOC.
