The mission of the Heart Rhythm Society’s MOC Program is to advance the clinical practice of electrophysiologists who are dedicated to the field of cardiac pacing and electrophysiology by promoting the highest evidence based guidelines and standards to ensure excellence in all areas of care and practice improvement.

Diplomates are responsible for their own self-assessment activities, continuing medical education credits, and practice improvement plans, and they can choose the learning tools that will best address their perceived needs, expand their expertise, and enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of their practice.

The goal is for diplomates to reflect on their personal knowledge and performance and commit to a process of improvement and reevaluation of performance measures over a specified time frame that will ultimately lead to improved care for their patients.

MOC includes:
Part I: Verification of Licensure and Professional Standing
Part II: Self-evaluation of Medical Knowledge
Part III: Cognitive Expertise and Secure Examination
Part IV: Self-evaluation of Practice Performance
