Gastro and CGH now offer subscribers the potential to gain MOC credit through article-based exams.

Now you can read some of your favorite AGA journal articles and receive maintenance of certification (MOC) credit credit at the same time. Each issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Gastroenterology includes continuing medical education (CME) exams designated for potential CME, and now MOC as well. The exams, which are available to subscribers, are based on an article from that issue and consist of a single test with short questions, followed by a brief post-test evaluation.

The AGA designates certain journal-based CME activities for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. Successful completion of these CME activities, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to one MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) MOC program. As AGA works to reform the MOC system, we recognize that many members need to earn points in the current system. Eligible participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.

For more information about logging in and participating, visit the journal sites. 

Ready to get started? The January exams for both CGH and Gastro are now available online. You can also access past exams from each publication, but keep in mind that credit can only be earned for up to one year after the exam has been published.
