Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Society approved as MOC Portfolio Sponsor

The Multi-Specialty Portfolio Approval Program (Portfolio Program), on behalf of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and participating member boards, has awarded the Wisconsin Medical Society the status of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Portfolio Sponsor. This offers diplomates of 20 ABMS specialty boards the opportunity to earn MOC Part IV credit for participating in the Society’s performance improvement activities.

According to a letter from ABMS, the Society “is granted authority to approve internal quality improvement projects as meeting Portfolio Program Standards and Guidelines.”

“Being a Portfolio Sponsor signifies our continued commitment to supporting physicians in fulfilling their licensure and specialty board requirements, while aligning these efforts with relevant quality improvement activities,” said Society CEO Rick Abrams.

The Society’s accreditation period as an MOC Portfolio Sponsor extends through Oct. 1, 2017. Click here for more information about the Portfolio Program.

A CME provider since 1976, the Society also was awarded Accreditation with Commendation status from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education in 2012—the highest level of accreditation an organization can achieve.
