We've compiled this list of information that you need to know to get the most out of MOCA 2.0® and MOCA Minute®. You can always reach our Communications Center at (866) 999-7501 or coms@theABA.org for assistance Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

 

 

          
  • Your MOCA Minute questions are based on the certificates you are maintaining and the knowledge every board-certified diplomate should have.

    • If you are only maintaining your anesthesiology certification, you will answer general anesthesia questions and questions based on the areas of practice you selected in your Practice Profile.

    • If you are only maintaining your subspecialty certification in critical care medicine, pain medicine or pediatric anesthesiology, you will receive some of your questions in the subspecialty area and some based on the areas of practice you selected in your Practice Profile.

    • If you are maintaining multiple certifications in anesthesiology, critical care medicine, pain medicine and/or pediatric anesthesiology, you will receive questions related to each certification area.

    • If you are maintaining subspecialty certification in sleep medicine and/or hospice and palliative medicine, you can optionally answer MOCA Minute questions, but will continue to take the subspecialty recertification exam to fulfill the Part 3 requirement because the American Board of Internal Medicine administers those exams.

         

 

  • Do you know the distinction between the ABA and the ASA?  The ABA is one of 24 medical specialty boards that administers assessments and programs designed to gauge whether physicians are meeting the highest standards of their practice. The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) is a membership organization that offers continuing medical education products and advocacy for anesthesiologists. They are two independent organizations that serve anesthesiologists, but have different missions. Click here to learn more about the ABA.
