2017 ABIM Maintenance of Certification

Las Vegas, NV US
May 1, 2017

In an interactive format, the Pre-Course faculty will lead participants through two learning modules to help them prepare for the ABIM/ABFM Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine exam.  By completing the modules, participants can also earn points toward the ABIM Maintenance of Certification program.

Two modules will be presented: the ABIM Update in Hospital Medicine 2016 module and a new module created from the SHM SPARK online self-assessment tool.  SHM SPARK targets subject areas – such as Perioperative Care, Ethics, Patient Safety and Quality – that comprise 40% of the Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine exam and are not covered in traditional exam preparation tools.  Of note, the Pre-Course will occur 2 weeks before the Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine Exam in May 2017.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss the Recognition of Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine pathway and changes to the MOC process.
