    If you are certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and plan to take the September 2014 Demonstration of Ophthalmic Cognitive Knowledge (DOCK) Examination, the final deadline to register is August 1. Registration is completed online through the ABO website, abop.org

    • The DOCK is a secure, proctored, 150-item computer-based exam that takes approximately four hours to complete. The exam consists of one 50-item module on Core Ophthalmic Knowledge and two 50-item modules chosen by the diplomate from a list of practice emphasis areas.
    • Exam content is based on the MOC Content Outline, a curriculum of clinically relevant practice-related knowledge, and also includes topics in patient safety, environment of medical practice, and ethics.
    • The DOCK is a pass-fail examination with results based on the total percent correct of all 150 questions. The pass/fail result is determined by the combined grades of all three modules. 

    The DOCK exam is administered by appointment at Prometric Test Centers around the country in September of every year. For more information, contact the ABO at 610-664-1175, moc@abop.org, or visit abop.org/DOCK.
