Part III Pilot Project

The ABPN MOC Part III Pilot Project is a professional journal article-based assessment activity designed as an optional alternative to the current secure, proctored 10-year CC/MOC examination. The Pilot Project will run from 2019-2022.

In October 2020, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved the ABPN Article Assessment Pathway — currently called the Pilot Project — as a permanent alternative to the 10-year Continuing Certification (CC/MOC) examination. See our announcement for more information.

Beginning in 2022, this option for continuing certification will be available for all ABPN-administered specialties and subspecialties. At the same time, the traditional Continuing Certification (CC/MOC) computerized examination will continue to be offered as an option for all ABPN specialties and subspecialties. See our announcement for more information.

The pathway will ultimately provide greater flexibility to ABPN diplomates for meeting their MOC Part III program requirements.
