Credit Certifying Bodies

Maintenance of Certification at BCM

For questions, please contact: BCM MOC Program

The BCM MOC Program works directly with the ABMS Portfolio Program to request MOC Part 4 or NCCPA Category 1 PI-CME credit on behalf of eligible BCM and BCM-affiliated physicians and physician assistants (PA) who are certified by participating ABMS Member Boards (listed below) or the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

If approved, credit is issued accordingly by the relevant certifying body, based on their respective requirements and credit translation for continuing certification. As such, physicians and PAs should expect to see their credit issued directly to their respective Member Board or NCCPA profiles.

The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) is a participant of the ABMS Portfolio Program (via a parallel program coordinated by the ABMS Portfolio Program). As such, eligible physician assistants can participate in the BCM MOC Program to earn NCCPA Category 1 PI-CME credit for their engagement in qualified QI activities.
