“The new MOC/CC test is a VAST improvement over what it was previously! A major high-five to whoever realized that at this point in our careers, one does not need to necessarily calculate the acid gap in an ICU patient nor remember every esoteric muscular dystrophy to take good care of patients. If you have not had a chance to look it over, it is now based on Level 1 evidence data and recent randomized clinical studies. Please extend my thanks to whoever had the good sense to finally fix this!!!
Patients want peace of mind when it comes to their care. Being board certified means physicians are skilled, knowledgeable and experts in their specialty. It also means they’ve met a higher standard.
Neurological Surgeons participating in the American Board of Neurological Surgery MOC satisfy the American College of Surgeons COT continuing educational requirements necessary to participate in Level 1 Trauma Center coverage. No additional trauma related CME are required. The ABNS considers trauma and emergency neurological practice and principles part of every diplomates “core knowledge”. The ABNS will use their MOC/continuous certification process to update and educate our diplomates on these emergency neurological surgery principles as new evidence based data evolves.
