Maintenance of Certification

Maintenance of Certification reflects commitment to lifelong learning
The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program reflects the American Heart Association | American Stroke Association’s commitment to providing lifelong learning for every stage of one’s career. The MOC Program is designed to advance the basic, clinical, population, and translational practice of healthcare clinicians who are dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke, by promoting the highest evidence-based guidelines and standards to ensure excellence in all areas of care and practice improvement.

The MOC program also provides an opportunity for healthcare professionals to reflect on their personal knowledge, performance and commitment to a process of improvement and reevaluation of performance measures over a specified time frame, which will ultimately lead to improved care for patients.

Participants are responsible for their own self-assessment activities, continuing medical education credits, and practice improvement plans. A variety of learning tools will be available to help each participant best address their perceived needs, expand their expertise, and enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of their practice.

MOC includes:

  • Part I: Verification of Licensure and Professional Standing
  • Part II: Self-evaluation of Medical Knowledge
  • Part III: Cognitive Expertise and Secure Examination
  • Part IV: Self-evaluation of Practice Performance
