Maintenance of Certification

MOC Recognition Statement

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 146 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program; and 146 MOC points in the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM or ABP MOC credit.

After submitting a reflective statement with key takeaways from the meeting, MOC points will be applied for ABIM & ABP diplomates to the ABIM & ABP number and date of birth provided when you registered. Points are sent nightly to ACCME and then transferred to the ABIM & ABP Physician Portal.

By completing this activity, you provide the ACR permission to share completion data with the ACCME and the certifying board(s).

2020 CME/MOC Credit

As a courtesy, ACR Convergence 2020 participants received an email with a list of sessions they joined. The list of sessions included the associated maximum amount of credit that can be claimed, but the AMA requires that you claim credit only for time spent actively participating in educational sessions. Credit must be claimed in increments of 0.25, with the maximum of 209.25 credits for the entire meeting (includes extended programming on November 10, 2020, November 21, 2020, and on-demand access until March 11, 2021). Credit should be claimed all at once after you finish participating in the activity. If you attempt to claim credit that exceeds the maximum available AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, the system will default to the maximum credit(s) available for the entire meeting. Please contact education@rheumatology.org with any credit claiming questions.
