 "The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) has made significant changes to its Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC) over the past several years. Many changes were prompted by pediatricians who believe in the benefits of certification and ongoing assessment and want to help improve the process. The ABP is striving to make the MOC process more efficient and effective for pediatricians who want to provide excellent care for children. MOC offers tools for life-long learning, knowledge assessment, and quality improvement, and verifies to the public that pediatricians are staying current and improving their practice.

The ABP realizes that pediatricians engage in a wide variety of learning and improvement activities that meet ABP standards, and the board has implemented more ways for pediatricians to claim credit for activities they already are doing."
