C7 - Neurology MOC Prep Course

Event Time: Saturday April 22, 2017 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, General Neurology: Overview
Director(s): Ericka Simpson MD
Description: This program is intended to provide information to help neurologists prepare for their Maintenance of Certification (MOC) exam. Invited speakers who have taken and passed the recertification examination will cover areas of neurology that are both heavily weighted on the ABPN examination and those areas that have recently been added to the examination, including interpersonal and communication issues, systems-based practice issues, diagnostic procedures, and neuro-rehabilitation. In addition, representatives from the ABPN and AAN will discuss new requirements for admission to the MOC examination and enrollment in the Continuous Maintenance of Certification (C-MOC) after recertification. The program will incorporate pre-test questions for each presentation to assist attendees in identifying areas that require focused study. Presentations and syllabus materials will be provided and include resources for ongoing study and review.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to identify areas of neurology that require more focused study and review in preparation for the re-certification examination; self-assess knowledge after completion of the educational program to further focus study and review; and demonstrate improved competency and performance in clinical practice and patient outcomes based upon application of new and reviewed information derived from the educational program in their clinical practice, as well as for successful recertification and continued maintenance. Attendees will be provided information regarding the new requirements for MOC examination admission and continuing maintenance of examination including completion of CME credits, self-assessment activities, and completion of an Improvement in Medical Practice (PIP) unit.
CME Credits: 6.5
