AAPS (AAPSonline.org) is collecting information on the true costs of participating in MOC – maintenance of certification and OCC – Osteopathic continuous certification.
Specialty boards often downplay the costs of MOC, minimizing them by
referring only to the fee for taking the examination.
AAPS will be collecting and reporting on the hard numbers obtained from this survey. This information will be critical not only in opposing the mis-information distributed by specialty boards, but in supporting our AAPS lawsuit against the American Board of Medical Specialties.
But, we need your help and the help of physicians who are participating in MOC to tell us their actual costs.
If you are participating in MOC, please help us by taking the survey:
