ABA Supports ABMS Statement Regarding Continuing Certification During COVID-19  3/30/2020

As the worldwide health care community continues to navigate and respond to the ever-changing COVID-19 landscape, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and its 24 Member Boards are committed to supporting diplomates and trainees as they work on the front line to combat this virus by providing expert care to patients.


COVID-19 UPDATE - Waiving MOCA Requirements for 2020  3/24/2020
The ABA recognizes the strains under which diplomates are practicing and wants them to prioritize their time to serve the immediate needs of their practice, their families, and themselves. If you feel that you cannot meet MOCA requirements because of the COVID-19 pandemic, then the ABA will waive those requirements for the remainder of 2020. There is no need to inform the Board if you need your requirements waived. We are working on a plan to operationalize this decision, particularly for diplomates whose certification expires this year, and will share details once we have them. The bottom line is that your certification will not be adversely impacted if you are not able to complete your MOCA requirements in 2020.


COVID-19 Update: APPLIED Exams Weeks 2-6 Cancelled  3/17/2020
Given the escalating nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are cancelling Weeks 2 (March 16-19), 3 (March 30-April 2), 4 (April 20-23), 5 (May 4-7) and 6 (May 18-21) of the APPLIED Exam in Raleigh, N.C. We have also closed APPLIED Exam registration. The public health risk posed by COVID-19 outweighs the benefits of administering the exam at this time.
