More than 80 courses approved for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) are available through LAMMICO to facilitate physician access to this educational requirement of specialty medical boards. The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) have established two distinct databases for their certified physicians to identify board approved educational activities that meet the Part II standards of MOC.
As Part II of the MOC requirements, these courses are available through our subsidiary risk management site, Medical Interactive Community (MI). While our courses may be accessed by any physician directly through MI, LAMMICO is pleased to pass on an additional no-cost benefit directly to those we insure when they access their Member Login.
By taking an MOC-approved course in your specialty, LAMMICO policyholders can potentially earn a triple benefit:

American Board of Medical Specialties MOC Approval
LAMMICO is the first Louisiana CME provider with courses approved for MOC in a joint initiative between the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Boards that have approved one or more of LAMMICO CME courses for MOC include:
LAMMICO habitually submits our CME courses to the ABMS and other boards as new programs become available - so be sure to visit our MOC-Approved pages from time to time to discover the latest opportunities to satisfy Part II standards of MOC.
American Board of Internal Medicine MOC Approval
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has chosen to partner with American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) for their medical Knowledge Assessment Recognition Program through which they recognize accredited CME activities for MOC. Though a member of the ABMS, the ABIM approves CME courses differently. LAMMICO is accredited with commendation by the ACCME as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians. As a result of this commendation and the high quality of our education, the ABIM has approved more than 50 of our online courses for their MOC approval.
Physicians earn Board certification as a means of demonstrating expertise in their medical specialty. Initial certification is achieved through an intense testing and eligibility process. To maintain certification over years of practice, a physician remains competent through continuing their education along with other professional accomplishments. Each medical specialty has specific requirements for physicians to maintain their certification. The MOC program provides physicians with a formal mechanism to maintain certification through continuous, specialty-specific learning, assessment and improvement activities through a four part MOC framework.
Through the LAMMICO subsidiary, Medical Interactive, online CME is available for public access for a small fee, or can be purchased in bulk for medical groups or facilities at a discounted rate.
