Participants who are enrolled in ABIM’s Maintenance of Certification program can order a copy of the Internal Medicine and/or Hospital Medicine from ABIM’s website, www.abim.org, and transfer and submit the answers discussed during the Learning Session to ABIM for scoring. Participants will have access to a score report that confirms whether or not the module was completed successfully.  Those who complete the module successfully will receive 10 points for completing a 30-question module toward ABIM’s Self-Evaluation of Medical Knowledge requirement for Maintenance of Certification.  You must be enrolled in ABIM’s Maintenance of Certification program to submit completed medical knowledge modules for scoring, feedback reports.
