To provide more ways for diplomates to customize the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process, the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) is currently inviting interested diplomates to submit self-designed quality improvement projects as part of a new pilot program. Upon review and approval, these self-designed projects would be accepted for full MOC Part 4 credit in lieu of completion of the Practice Improvement Module (PIM).
Through the ABO’s Self-Directed Quality Improvement Project Pilot Program, diplomates have the option to design clinical or non-clinical quality improvement activities relevant to their current practice environments rather than selecting from the list of existing ABO modules. Clinical projects include direct patient care (i.e. submissions should be related to improving processes of care and patient outcomes), while non-clinical submissions may be related to improving tools, systems, or strategies related to work processes. Complete program information and application forms are available at abop.org/QI.
