Multi-Specialty MOC Portfolio Program
About the Portfolio Program
KU School of Medicine is an approved sponsor of The Multi-Specialty Portfolio ProgramTM (Portfolio Program), a service provided through the American Board of Medical Specialties® (ABMS), that works with all types of health care organizations to support and recognize the work physicians are already doing to improve their practices and the care of their patients. It offers an option for organizations to support physician involvement in quality, performance, and process improvement (QI/PI) initiatives at their institution and award physicians Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) credit for the ABMS Program for Maintenance of Certification (ABMS MOC®).
