NASPGHAN Part IV MOC
The NASPGHAN MOC Task Force is pleased to announce that we now can provide members with resources that will meet the requisite 40 MOC Part IV credits for each 5-year cycle. For your own specific requirements, please refer to your individual American Board of Pediatrics MOC portfolio.
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 TWO of the available modules per 5-year accreditation cycle. 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.
A new MOC Constipation module is now available to participants.
