APA: ABPN releases details on MOC pilot project

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has announced that the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology recently released details surrounding a new “optional MOC Part III Pilot Project” that is scheduled to begin in 2019.

According to APA, the effort is a “journal article-based assessment activity [that is designed to be] an optional alternative to the current secure, proctored, 10-year MOC examination. Diplomates who do not wish to participate in the pilot program may continue to take the 10-year MOC examination.”

APA adds that, “The pilot is scheduled to run for three years, after which ABPN will expand the program to include additional diplomates (including those last decertified in 2015-2018), and develop a plan for expanding this approach to subspecialties beyond child and adolescent psychiatry.”
