The final administration of the DOCK Examination is happening this year. As of 2019, all ophthalmologists will transition to the new Quarterly Questions program.
The DOCK Examination tests clinically relevant fundamental knowledge in ophthalmology as well as self-selected practice-related knowledge. The exam is based on the MOC Content Outline, a curriculum of clinically relevant ophthalmic knowledge developed by hundreds of practicing ophthalmologists.
The testing window has been extended from January to December for online, on-demand access.
Alternatively, diplomates can take the DOCK at a Prometric testing center location in September; however, final registration for the September option closes August 1.
