Abstract

Maintenance of certification (MOC) recognizes that in addition to medical knowledge, several essential elements involved in delivering quality care must be developed and maintained throughout one's career. The MOC process is designed to facilitate and document the professional development of each American Board of Radiology (ABR) diplomate through its focus on the essential elements of quality care in diagnostic radiology, its subspecialties, radiation oncology, and radiologic physics. The initial elements of the ABR's MOC program have been developed in accord with guidelines of the American Board of Medical Specialties. Further details will be developed as the process evolves.
