Part IV: Practice Performance Assessment

Part IV of the ABAM Tmoc 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 Transitional 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.
