ID and HIV Maintenance of Certification Modules Available

Two Maintenance of Certification (MOC) modules—one in general ID medicine and one in HIV medicine—are available online from IDSA and the HIV Medicine Association (HIMVA).

Developed in 2010 by panels of experts from both organizations, each 25-question module is worth 10 points toward MOC by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). Continuing medical education (CME) credit is also available from IDSA. To pass the module, you must have a score of 75 percent or better. To receive MOC points, you must be enrolled in ABIM’s MOC program. (For more information about the program requirements, visit ABIM’s website or call the ABIM Contact Center at (800) 441-ABIM, extension 3598.)

Even if you’re not enrolled in ABIM’s MOC program, the modules provide an excellent opportunity to earn CME credit. Each activity has been approved for two AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

For more information about MOC activities, visit IDSA’s website. For additional questions about the MOC modules, contact Kathy Matikonis at or (703) 299-0200.
