Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program

Overview about the MOC Program
Participation in the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program is now required for most pediatricians by the American Board of Pediatrics. However, provider participation does not need to be expensive, burdensome, or complicated. Children’s National Health Network (CNHN) has developed a practice-based model with Quality Improvement coaching support to help you meet your MOC QI requirement and to improve clinical care regionally.

CNHN is currently a Portfolio Sponsor for The American Board of Pediatrics Quality Improvement Projects Maintenance of Certification program.
