HPM PASS, 3rd Edition
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
AAHPM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical education (ACCME) to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.
AAHPM designates each enduring material for a maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. CME credits expire on July 8, 2019.
Maintenance of Certification (MOC)
“Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 10 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.”
ABIM MOC points expire on July 8, 2019.
To earn CME credits or MOC points, a passing score of 70% is required.
Through the American Board of Medical Specialties ("ABMS") and Association of American Medical Colleges' ("AAMC") joint initiative (ABMS MOC Directory) to create a wide array of Maintenance of Certification ("MOC") Activities, HPM PASS - 3rd edition has met the MOC requirements as a MOC Part II CME Activity (apply toward general CME requirement) by the following ABMS Member Boards:
MOC Part II CME Activity
American Board of Family Medicine
American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
American Board of Radiology
Note: If a Member Board has not determined this activity for MOC approval as an accredited CME activity, this activity may count toward an ABMS Member Board's general CME requirement (only). Please refer directly to your Member Board's MOC Part II Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment Program Requirements.
