American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Continuing Certification (formerly Maintenance of Certification Part IV)

The North Carolina AHEC Practice Support Program is an approved Project of the North Carolina Maintenance of Certification (NC MOC) Program, an approved sponsor of the American Board of Medical Specialties’ (ABMS) Multi-specialty Portfolio Program (MSPP). Most ABMS Member Boards recognize this participation as an option to meet Part IV requirements. The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) also accepts NC MOC credit for physician assistants.

Through this approval, physicians and physician assistants who work with an NC AHEC Practice Support coach to improve care for patients will meet the requirements of their specialty boards to maintain certification in their specialties. To qualify, physicians and physician assistants must have actively worked, for at least six months, with an NC AHEC Practice Support coach to improve patient outcomes/experiences or positively impact other aspects of their practice.
