ABIM and ACCME Partner to Produce CME Finder Tool

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) partnered to produce the CME Finder – a web-based tool that allows physicians to search for continuing medical education (CME) opportunities, providing information such as activity provider and type, end date, participation restrictions, and associated fees on CME activities registered for maintenance of certification (MOC) credit. The tool also sends completion information directly to ABIM once a physician completes a listed activity, and physicians do not have to take any further steps to record these MOC activities.

“We are expanding our collaboration to encourage CME providers to continue to innovate and create educational activities that blend medical knowledge and practice assessment opportunities, which allows us to seamlessly recognize a physician’s journey through self-directed learning,” said Richard J. Baron, MD, president and CEO of ABIM, in a press release.

ABIM and ACCME plan to release additional MOC opportunities in the spring of 2017.
