MOC credit now available for KU affiliated physicians across Kansas

The University of Kansas School of Medicine is now an approved sponsor of the American Board of Medical Specialties Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program™.

This designation means that board-certified physician faculty who are affiliated with the University of Kansas Medical Center or The University of Kansas Hospital can receive MOC Part IV (Performance Improvement in Practice) credit for meaningful participation in local quality improvement initiatives that have been approved by our internal review processes. This allows board-certified physicians to receive MOC credit for practice-based quality improvement work that is relevant to them in their clinical environment.

The Portfolio Program is administered by the KU Medical Center’s Office of Continuing Medical Education with quality improvement project review conducted by the Performance Improvement Committee of the medical staff at The University of Hospital in Kansas City and the Quality Improvement/Patient Safety Subcommittee of the Graduate Medical Education Committee in Wichita (for Wichita and Salina projects).

Any quality improvement activity with meaningful participation by KU Medical Center-affiliated faculty is eligible to be considered for the Portfolio Program. This includes inpatient activity in affiliated teaching hospitals as well as ambulatory care activities in affiliated clinics.

Residents who are affiliated with the University of Kansas School of Medicine are also encouraged to participate.

Once physicians have completed their participation in the initiative, the Portfolio Program staff will report to the ABMS who will report to the appropriate certifying boards. There is no need for individual physicians to report directly to their certifying boards. There is no cost for participation in the program, and in some cases, CME credit will be awarded along with MOC Part IV credit.

You can find additional information on the website or by contacting Candice Reynolds, multi-special program manager at creynolds5@kumc.edu.
