ACS CME Dropped for MOC Participants
May 14, 2018 - The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT) recently revised the criteria for trauma CME for trauma centers. Effective immediately, certified physicians from any ABMS Member Board with an MOC program that includes sufficient trauma content will not need to acquire trauma CME credits.
ABEM and every major EM organization submitted the trauma content of ABEM’s MOC Program and it was found to meet this standard, so ABEM-certified physicians participating in MOC no longer need to fulfill the ACS-COT trauma center verification trauma-related CME requirement.
ABEM will continue to seek opportunites like this to add value to your certification.
