  • MOC Participation Status: In mid-November, the section of the profile that's currently titled Meeting Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Requirements will be changed to Participating in Maintenance of Certification (MOC). Research conducted by ABMS and feedback from a variety of MOC stakeholders (physicians, specialty societies, etc.) indicated that the new language would provide greater transparency and clarity about the MOC program.

    Published in Cooperation with ABMS is published by Elsevier in cooperation with the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). This authoritative reference tool provides certification status and complete biographical and professional information about board certified physicians. It is designed to help a wide range of professionals and businesses in the medical community with credential verification, referrals, research and more.

    At BoardCertifiedDocs you can check a physician's board certification status, medical education and work history. With monthly certification updates and daily biographical updates, BoardCertifiedDocs provides instant access to complete profiles on more than 900,000 board certified physicians.

    The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is recognized as a primary source of board certification information and has been designated by the ABMS as an Official Display Agent and provides this primary source data on the organization's behalf. NOTE: Board certification information (which includes MOC) is reported by the ABMS Member Boards. As a Display Agent, we display what the boards report through ABMS and we cannot change that information on the profiles. If there is a question about certification or MOC data on a profile, please contact the Editorial team (see the Contact Us page), to investigate discrepancies with ABMS.

    The profiles on Board Certified Docs meet the requirements from The Joint Commission (TJC), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) and Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
