Ophthalmology Times blogger, vitreoretinal surgeon, and American Board of Ophthalmology diplomate Joshua Mali, MD, recently named the year’s top stories in the profession. Among his choices for influential and important news and events, which included advancements in artificial intelligence and healthcare law reform, Dr. Mali selected the improvements to the 2019 ABO Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program as #3 on the list. “The ABO has developed impressive new initiatives to improve the board certification process and MOC,” Dr. Mali wrote. He listed the increasing value of the Quarterly Questions program along with the phasing out of the DOCK Examination, the Practice Improvement Modules (PIMs), and the Periodic Ophthalmic Review Tests (PORTs) as steps in a positive new direction for the ABO MOC program.
