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

Join the movement and enroll in the 2019 HPV QI Project today, learning with pediatricians from six states, participating in a self-directed QI program designed to improve HPV immunization rates in clinics and communities across the Midwest. Enhance your knowledge of the HPV vaccine and learn how to overcome vaccination barriers while earning certification credits.

Participate in a collaborative virtual learning environment with expert physician-guided education. Work with other clinicians through virtual discussions to analyze interventions, results and opportunities for improvement. 100% of the clinicians in the first round of this ground-breaking HPV QI Project strongly agreed that the information they learned helped improve their patient outcomes, improved their own competence and performance, and enhanced their practice.

Over the span of six months, you will learn the project methodology and participate in engaging webinars. You will conduct your first Plan, Do, Study, and Act (PDSA) cycle with guidance from expert faculty. Through two cycles, you will collect and enter key data in the online collection system and receive detailed reports during final project evaluation.

The project is free for clinicians in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. Earn 20 MOC Part IV Credits and 5 CME credits while improving patient outcomes and enhancing practice.
