ABPN is not a CME provider. While non-CME Self-Assessment waiver options on the lists below contribute to the Self-Assessment requirement of the ABPN MOC Program, they are NOT recognized by state medical licensing boards as Category-1 CME credits.
The ABPN may waive eight Self-Assessment CME credits through completion of specific non-CME Self-Assessment activities. A maximum of 16 Self-Assessment CME credits may be waived per MOC block with two different types of non-CME Self-Assessment activities (see below) or for successful completion of the MOC Part III Pilot Project.
