The American Board of Allergy & Immunology (ABAI) accepts AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM awarded by ACAAI to meet the Maintenance of Certification® (MOC) requirements of allergist/immunologists. Please contact ABAI for specific information on certification and MOC.  

The ABAI has approved an updated Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program that will be implemented in January of 2018. The Continuous Assessment Pilot (CAP) Program will promote a continuous process for lifelong learning and self-assessment to keep skills clinically relevant and knowledge current in a rapidly changing practice environment.

It is “open-book” with a total of approximately 80 questions per year, mostly article-based with some core knowledge questions. Diplomates will be required to answer approximately three questions for each of ten articles per 6-month cycle.

Cycle 1 is January through June. CME Credit will be available for this cycle through the Academy.
Cycle 2 is July through December. CME Credit will be available for this cycle through the College.
A review of the respective CAP articles will be provided at the Academy and College’s Annual Meetings.

For more information, see the “Update on ABAI Maintenance of Certification Program.”

How the College Can Help

ACAAI has a selection of Board Review materials to assist with exam preparedness. The College provides the opportunity to earn MOC eligible credit through designated workshops and sessions at the ACAAI annual scientific meeting. We also have many options for earning continuing medical education credit - please see the Course Catalog for offerings. The College has also developed a Performance Improvement nodule on Atopic Dermatitis to meet MOC Part 4 requirements. Atopic Dermatitis PI CME is free to College members. 

MOC Modules
These modules are approved by the American Board of Allergy & Immunology as Self-Assessment Activities for MOC Part II credit. The ABAI recommends (but no longer requires) that at least 6 of the 25 annual credits be in a Self-Assessment activity.

Do not purchase these if you have already subscribed to the On Demand Annual Meeting package, as it already contains all this content and the MOC credit:
