MOC Re-Entry Program

Re-Entry to MOC after December 15, 2016

  • Diplomates who do not register for the annual MOC requirements by December 15, 2016 will no longer be certified by ABAM. These diplomates may re-enter the MOC process and regain active ABAM certification as follows:  payment of  a $250 administrative re-entry fee and registration for the 2017 MOC cycle.  Like other boards, ABAM is implementing this re-entry process as a way to allow diplomates an opportunity to re-enroll in MOC and active certification status if they have missed the deadline and wish to regain diplomate status.
  • Below are the Requirements:

All Diplomates:  Log into the portal, pay re-entry fee and 2017 MOC cycle fee and add medical license information

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.
