Resources to be provided include quality improvement and practice performance projects that will qualify for MOC Part IV credits and be relevant to the practicing pediatric gastroenterologist.

The charge for participation in these modules is $250 for participation in any or all of the 4 modules. Each module will be worth 25 MOC Part IV credits and 20 CME credits; thus, taking 2 modules will fulfill all ABP part 4 MOC requirements for a five-year cycle.
