MOC Part 3 - Cognitive Expertise

The exam is a multiple-choice, computer-based exam administered in over 200 testing centers throughout the country. The exam focuses on clinical applications of knowledge and topics that are relevant to practice. To sit for the cognitive exam, all current MOC requirements must be satisfied. Combined (formerly modular) exams are available for physicians who wish to recertify in more than one specialty and/or subspecialty at the same time.

MOC Part III Pilot Project

The ABPN MOC Part III Pilot Project is a professional journal article-based assessment activity designed as an optional alternative to the current secure, proctored 10-year MOC examination. The Pilot Project will run for 3 years, from 2019-2021 and, if approved by the ABMS, the ABPN plans to transition diplomates into this program in 2022 as a permanent alternative to the secure MOC examination.
The ABPN has released the list of articles for child and adolescent psychiatry and your AACAP membership includes access to 29 of them for free. Several others are freely available, and do not require a fee to access. For your convenience, we have made a collection of these articles, including direct links to each.
