MOC Accreditation Programs
There are MOC accreditation programs for all specialties regarding adult medicine, but pediatric programs are fewer in number and sometimes lack meaningful content. In the last three years, WIAAP has shifted focus to include more MOC programming, which requires a significant amount of research, planning, development, and resources prior to implementation. Despite these obstacles, WIAAP has successfully implemented two Maintenance of Certification programs and is on the planning committee for a third.
MOC Part II
In 2017, WIAAP offered its first MOC Part II program at the Mental Health in the Pediatric Medical Home: Screening, Observation, Support” conference. The event was designed to bring pediatric professionals together with specialists in several mental health fields to help improve early diagnosis. Topics included infant mental health, trauma-informed care, the autism spectrum; MOC II was awarded for a session surrounding anxiety, depression, ADHD, and early diagnosis and treatment of mental health. The conference was designed to increase provider capacity to support the mental and behavioral health needs of children, adolescents, and their families.
This year, the conference is scheduled for October 5th and is sponsored by the Medical College of Wisconsin. We have served on the planning team and look forward to participants earning 5 MOC II credits.
MOC Part IV
WIAAP is currently offering a collaborative virtual learning plan for HPV vaccination awareness and increased immunization rates. Participating members will earn 20 MOC Part IV credits and 5 CME credits for their involvement in the six-month initiative. Participants will navigate challenges together through virtual learning discussions to analyze interventions, results, and opportunities for improvement in increasing HPV vaccination rates in their practices.
Registration has now closed for this program, however, members who missed this cohort will be able to access the materials and project instructions for self-directed MOC IV after the project is completed in September 2018. Those participating in the self-directed iteration of this program are still eligible to receive 20 MOC IV and 5 CME credits.
