CME Credits

The American College of Physicians is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American College of Physicians designates eligible ACP Practice Advisor Modules for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with their participation in the activity. 

MOC Points

Each of the eligible modules is approved through the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Approved Quality Improvement (AQI) pathway and is eligible for 20 points towards the Self-Evaluation of Practice Assessment requirement of Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

Credit is divided into two stages. After taking the ACP Practice Biopsy®, reading the background material and case study, reviewing the resources, and creating a Practice Improvement Action Plan, users may submit for up to 10 credits and points. To receive the remaining 10 credits and points users must implement measurable changes in one or more targeted areas, and come back after 30 days and take a Follow-up Biopsy before CME/MOC can be claimed.
