Part IV of the ABAM MOC Program is in development and has not yet launched. Diplomates will participate in a range of ABAM-approved performance improvement projects designed to assess and improve the quality of patient care.
ABAM offers a Maintenance of Certification program for its current diplomates and a public listing of physicians who hold active ABAM certification status. In March, 2016 the American Board of Medical Specialties formally recognized addiction medicine as a multi-specialty subspecialty. Future certification examinations in addiction medicine will be administered by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
