As a rheumatologist, satisfaction comes in part through providing quality patient care, and one way to demonstrate a commitment to patients is through engaging in continuous professional development. The ACR is dedicated to helping physicians in all stages of their careers participate in the process of lifelong learning.
The ACR offers the Rheumatology Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Course as one tool to help you navigate through the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) MOC program.

The MOC course is designed as an interactive learning experience that assists physicians in building their knowledge base in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of rheumatic diseases. Learning will be enhanced by audience response technology, where you can compare your answers to case vignettes with those of your peers. Whether preparing for the Rheumatology Board, the MOC exam, or looking for a comprehensive rheumatology refresher, this course can meet your educational needs.
The MOC course is based on the topics and cases presented in the ACR’s self-assessment activity, CARE. In the 2011 course, CARE 2010 will be brought to life by expert faculty who will provide context and answer rationales to CARE cases. There will also be opportunities for discussion of diverse topics such as the anatomy of the musculoskeletal system, humoral and cellular immunology, the role of immunogenetics in predisposition to rheumatic diseases, and more.
Course registration includes access to CARE 2010. Upon successful completion of the CARE 2010 self-assessment module, those enrolled in the ABIM MOC program can claim 30 MOC points in the category of self-evaluation of medical knowledge, and registrants may claim up to 15.5 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 credit for their participation in the live course.
Be sure to register for the meeting and book your hotel room early because registration is limited and rooms go quickly.
