ABPN Participation in MOC Portfolio Programs
The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology recognizes that many physicians already participate in quality improvement efforts in their local practice. The Multi-Specialty MOC Portfolio Approval Program (Portfolio Program) is an alternative pathway for healthcare organizations that support physician involvement in quality improvement and MOC to have their quality improvement efforts be approved for MOC Part IV credit. To find out more about the Portfolio Program, visit www.mocportfolioprogram.org. For a list of approved Portfolio Programs visit www.mocportfolioprogram.org/approved-portfolio-sponsors/.
