ABEM Subspecialists No Longer Required to Maintain EM Certification

Physicians certified in EM by ABEM who also hold an ABEM-issued subspecialty certificate are no longer required to maintain their Primary Emergency Medicine (EM) certification as long as they are participating in ABEM-accepted MOC programs.

Acceptable MOC Programs are:

  • The ABEM EM MOC
  • An ABEM subspecialty specific MOC program
  • An MOC program of another ABMS Member Board (e.g. ABPM for UHM certificate holders)

Physicians with questions are encouraged to contact ABEM at 517-332-4800, ext. 387 or subspecialties@abem.org
