Periodic Self-Assessment Module Resources

Periodic Self-Assessment Module

The Self-Assessment portion of MOC emphasizes learning based on self-assessment. The activities address relevant medical knowledge, ongoing advances and competencies in our specialty, based on practice gaps identified within dermatology. In order to “meet MOC requirements” you will need to complete 100 self-assessment credits in Years 1-3, 4-6 and 7-10 of the 10-year cycle, for a total of 300 credits in the 10-year cycle.

For more details, see MOC FAQs: Periodic Self-Assessment.
