What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Maintenance of Certification

The goal of the MOC process is to improve patient safety. ABOG believes that the MOC process as developed helps to ensure that its Diplomates are maintaining a high level of current medical knowledge, and are appropriately applying that information in their practices. Furthermore, the ABOG process is one of continuous certification. That is, if the assignments for any year are not completed successfully and on time, the physician’s certification expires and additional testing is required to reinstate Board status.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Conduct examination and/or other procedures to test the qualifications of voluntary candidates for certification by this organization. The criteria for certification shall be applied equally to all candidates regardless of sex, race, color, or national origin.

Determine, through participation in the Maintenance of Certification process, whether physicians have continued to maintain their professional qualifications.

Future of the Specialty:
- Be a thought leader.
- Have a definitive industry voice.
- Define OB/GYN specialties; frame the national discussion.
- Be poised to respond to external influences and threats.

Looking Ahead:
- Design options for certification (initial and continuing).
- Design test development process that ensures value.
- Adopt contemporary testing policies.
- Develop vision and plan for international certification.

Reputation and Brand:
- Advance women’s healthcare and ensure high-quality patient care.
- Develop clear multi-directional communication strategy.
- Ensure accountability for organizational goals.
- Promote diversity of people and perspectives on the board.

Stewardship:
- Be good stewards and position for long-term viability.
- Develop process and guiding principles for investments.
- Enhance transparency and accountability.

Certification is what this organization does, and we have a duty to the profession and public to ensure that we are doing so in a contemporary, efficacious, and efficient manner.

The core leadership team at ABOG has a wealth of cross functional business and clinical expertise. The leadership team has ensured that ABOG has the appropriate expertise and resources to explore, design, and implement novel technologies to enhance the certification process (e.g., simulation).

The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology has completed a job task analysis on Obstetrics and Gynecology to inform the blue print for certification.
