Earn MOC Points and CME Credits

Each year, the ATS Educational and the International Conference committees collaborate to ensure that International Conference symposia are eligible for Maintenance of Certification points.

ATS 2018 attendees are able to earn up to 44.5 American Board of Internal Medicine MOC Medical Knowledge points and 10 American Board of Pediatrics Part 2 MOC
Self-Assessment points.

In addition to the adult and pediatric Core Curriculum, there are 20 symposia that are eligible for MOC and will cover adult pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine as well as pediatric pulmonary symposia. The Adult and Pediatric Symposia eligible for MOC at the conference can be found at conference.thoracic.org/program/moc.php.

How to Earn MOC Points at ATS 2018

During ATS 2018: Attend any or all of the MOC symposia you are interested in. These sessions are highlighted in the Final Program.

After ATS 2018: Take the post-session test. All the tests will be available on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 4 p.m. PT and attendees can take the tests at no cost through July 31, 2018. Please note: audience response during a session does not count at the post-test.

How to Earn CME ATS 2018 

There are two separate pathways for claiming MOC and CME. In order to claim both CME and MOC, you will need to follow steps for both. You must pass the MOC post-test to earn MOC, and complete the CME evaluation to claim CME. Claiming one will not automatically transfer to the other.
