MKSAP for Maintenance of Certification

Both MKSAP 15 Updates and MKSAP 16 have been approved by the ABIM for MOC points. See details below.


You can now earn up to 174 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and up to 400 Medical Knowledge points under the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. This is a FREE service for MKSAP 16 subscribers who are registered with ABIM's MOC program. With MKSAP 16, you can earn CME credits, apply for MOC points, and prepare for the ABIM exam all at once, in a cost-efficient manner.

After scoring at least 50% correct on a test, you can now use our new online answer sheets to instantly submit for CME, MOC, or both, depending on your needs. No need to wait weeks to earn CME before qualifying for MOC. Simply complete MKSAP 16 tests and submit them directly to ABIM through the online answer sheets. Test records transfer immediately to the ABIM, and eligible diplomats' points are reported in their MOC records at ABIM within 1-3 days.
