MOC for ABIM on Clinical Key

Link to ClinicalKey



ClinicalKey is pleased to offer US physicians the ability to submit the Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit they earn on CK for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit with the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

ClinicalKey currently offers its subscribers free Internet Point-of-Care CME credit for self-directed, structured, online learning. CME credit is provided by the Elsevier Office of Continuing Medical Education (EOCME). The EOCME is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Successful completion of CME activities, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 0.5 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the ABIM MOC program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. Please note that users must have a personal login to be able to use the MOC functionality.
