About the Nephrology Longitudinal Knowledge Assessment

The ABIM has started offering a new five year assessment option called the Longitudinal Knowledge Assessment for physicians to meet their MOC program requirements in lieu of taking the traditional 10-year MOC Exam.

The BoardVitals Nephrology MOC question bank can be used as a resource to help you prepare for the ABIM LKA.
