Maximize Your MOC Part II Credit at Annual Meeting

The Ohio AAP has offered MOC Part II credit at annual meeting since 2013. This popular addition to the conference is a model that has been spread to AAP Chapters across the country, as pediatricians learn the value of participating in an MOC Part II activity with an expert speaker and guided discussion with peers.

Recently, the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) expanded options to receive lifelong learning and self-assessment (Part II) points for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) by participating in continuing medical education (CME) activities that meet certain evaluation and passing standards. This new format provides more variety in the types of activities that provide MOC Part II credit, but may place a burden on pediatricians as the amount of time required to earn points will likely increase.

Fortunately, the Ohio AAP has 10 activities that have been approved for 10 or 20 points, and can be completed in as little as 1 or 2 hours, respectively. These point values have been grandfathered by the ABP as they were approved before the January 1, 2017 transition. No additional activities are being approved at these point values, making the Ohio AAP’s library of activities a valuable return on time invested for participants! Be sure to register for the 2017 Annual Meeting to earn up to 40 points on MOC Part II during the conference on the following topics before they expire:

  • Child Abuse and Neglect
  • Injury Prevention: Birth to 4 and Adolescent
  • Obesity Prevention in Primary Care
  • Mental Health Issues: Early Identification and Intervention

In addition, an exciting and informative keynote address on State and Federal Advocacy will be given by Mark Del Monte, JD, Chief Deputy, Senior Vice President of Advocacy and External Affairs at the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Registration is now open for the meeting, which takes place in Dublin (near Columbus) October 27-28, 2017. This meeting has sold out several years in a row — so register now to ensure you have a spot!
