How It Works
Maintenance of Certification
The MOC Rules in detail:
Diplomates who have failed to meet the annual requirement at the end of each calendar year will have until March 31st the following year to rectify the situation. Failing that, they will revert to the original recertification pathway. The same applies to the failure to submit the 30 hours of CME each 5 year period. They have until March 31st in year 6 to rectify the situation. Failing that, they will revert to the original recertification pathway.
For drop-outs within the first 5 years, the original 10 year anniversary applies.
For drop-outs after the first 5 years, recertification is due 5 years from the drop-out date.
There is no option to “buy back in”, i.e. drop-outs are no longer eligible for the MOC pathway!
Maintain your certification
The International Board of Lifestyle Medicine (IBLM) sets and maintains standards for assessment and credentialing of physicians in Lifestyle Medicine. Certification as an IBLM diplomate signifies specialized knowledge in the practice of lifestyle medicine and distinguishes a physician as having achieved competency in lifestyle medicine.
