MAINE MEDICAL CENTER APPROVED AS AN ABMS PORTFOLIO PROGRAM SPONSOR

Sponsorship helps physicians and physician assistants earn continuing certification (MOC) credit

Maine Medical Center has been approved as a Program Sponsor in the American Board of Medical Specialties Portfolio Programâ„¢ (ABMS Portfolio Program). Through this program, we are sponsoring activities that promote our quality and safety improvement aims while you earn continuing certification (MOC) credit from a participating ABMS Member Board or from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

Participation in the ABMS Portfolio Program recognizes activities designed to improve your practices and the care of your patients. You may select from curated, approved activities that we are implementing or develop your own activities and submit them to the MMP Clinical Safety and Outcomes Committee for approval. Activities can be large in scale to address systemic and clinical issues or smaller activities to improve a specific area of practice.

Through the ABMS Portfolio Program, the departments of medical education and quality improvement take care of the essential administrative tasks related to credit confirmation.

  • Submitting activities to the ABMS Portfolio Program for approval.
  • Reviewing and approving individual or group attestations of activity participation.
  • Sending confirmation of activity completion to the ABMS Portfolio Program for transmission to the particular ABMS Member Board(s) or the NCCPA to receive credit approval.
