      The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology does not require any CME hours. However, there are some requirements as follows: Each Diplomate will receive the titles of a minimum of 45 papers from the current medical literature three times each year. A minimum of 30 of the articles that are most applicable must be read, and four questions about the content answered correctly. Each Diplomate must sit for and pass a secure, written examination in the 6th year of each MOC cycle. The examination is designed to assess the Diplomate’s level of current knowledge of the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Those who hold subspecialty certification are required to be examined in both basic OB-Gyn and their subspecialty.
      Additionally, completion of ABOG MOC activities may award CME credits that can be used towards other boards' requirements.

      NOTE: In 2016, the ABOG started a 2-year pilot program that will allow high performers on the self-assessment MOC requirements to earn an exemption from the recertification examination.
