The ABPN patient safety activity requirement began for diplomates who first passed a certification or MOC exam in 2016 and who entered the ABPN C-MOC Program in 2017. Those diplomates whose first block of MOC activities began in 2017 or later are now required to do or have done a patient safety activity within three years prior or three years after entering the C-MOC Program. Diplomates of the ABPN are required to participate in an ABPN-approved patient safety activity to ensure they have adequate knowledge of safety science and principles.
