Automatic CME credit reporting to support physician's state licensure and board certification
To simplify and streamline MOC and CME reporting, the AMA is collaborating with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to report physician participation in accredited CME activities to certain state and specialty medical boards.
If you are a licensed physician through one or more of the state medical boards mentioned below, CME credits for successfully completed AMA activities offered via the AMA Ed Hub, including CME from the JAMA Network™, will be automatically transferred on your behalf to the following boards:
Additionally, CME credits for successfully completed AMA activities offered via AMA Ed Hub, including CME from the JAMA Network™ will be automatically transmitted to the boards for the purpose of earning MOC credit/points if you are board certified through one or more of the specialty medical boards mentioned below:
If you do not wish to have your CME information automatically transferred on your behalf, you can opt-out by updating your preferences.
Automatic CME credit transfer to specialty boards (ABIM, ABP, ABOHNS, ABPath): After you successfully complete and claim AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for a JAMA Network Continuing Medical Education CME activity on JN Learning™ or JN Listen™, or an eligible AMA activity, the associated CME activity information will be automatically transferred to the ACCME Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) which will in turn send them to the respective board(s), ABIM, ABP and/or ABOHNS. This is part of the ABIM MOC Assessment Recognition Program, the ABP Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment CME Provider Program, the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery's Continuing Certification Program and the American Board of Pathology Continuing Certification Program, whereby ABIM, ABP, ABOHNS, and ABPath recognize accredited CME activities which have met their requirements for MOC points.
Automatic CME credit transfer to state boards (Maryland, California, Oregon, Tennessee, North Carolina, North Dakota, or Maine): A process similar to the one described above applies to all CME credits successfully earned from any JAMA Network and AMA activity available on the AMA Ed Hub. All completed CME information is automatically transmitted to the Maryland Board of Physicians, the Medical Board of California, the Oregon Medical Board, the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners, the North Carolina Medical Board, the North Dakota Board of Medicine, the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine and/or the Maine Board of Osteopathic Licensure via ACCME's Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS).
Ability to opt out: If your board ID number is listed under our reporting preferences section, you do not need to do anything to enable these transfers. You can always opt out by clicking on the link below and updating your preferences.

Nothing! After you complete and claim AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, your CME activity information will be transmitted automatically to the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (ABOHNS) and/or the American Board of Pathology (ABPath) via PARS. The respective specialty board will then issue related MOC credit/points. No additional action is needed.
Currently, credits from JAMA Network CME and qualifying AMA CME credits are transmitted automatically to ABIM, ABP, ABOHNS and/or ABPath. We anticipate adding additional boards in the future. Please sign up for updates to stay informed.
Currently, JAMA Network CME activities count for ABIM Medical Knowledge MOC points, ABP Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment (MOC Part 2) points, ABOHNS Lifelong Learning (Part II) MOC points and/or ABPath Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (MOC Part 2) points.
You can set your credit transmission preferences using the "My Preferences" section of this website. Simply select "no" under the "Send Credit Data?" and save your updates. If you choose to opt out, information regarding your participation in JAMA Network or AMA CME activities will not be transferred to the participating state and/or specialty boards. You can change your preferences and opt back in at any time.
