MOC Overview

What should I be doing to maintain my certification?

Under the new rolling certification process that was implemented by the ABR in 2013, there will be an annual look-back that will evaluate a diplomate's participation in the three previous calendar years. The first full look-back was March 2, 2016, and reviewed a diplomate’s participation in all four part of MOC.

At the time of each annual look-back, you must have:

  • An active, current, valid and unrestricted license relevant to all of your locations of practice.
  • Completed 75 CME (at least 25 of which are SA-CME) within the three previous calendar years. (Participate in ASTRO's CME and SA-CME offerings.)
  • New in January 2020, participate in the Online Longitudinal Assessment
  • Completed one PQI project within the three previous calendar years. (Participate in ASTRO's PQI offerings.)

Where can I learn more about MOC?

ASTRO encourages all current and future American Board of Radiology (ABR) diplomates to visit the ABR website to learn about the details of Maintenance of Certification (MOC).
