Statement of Need

Anchoring on the ABIM Certification Examination Blueprint, the overall goal of this online course is to review and update knowledge and competency for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of endocrine diseases for physicians preparing for the initial certification exam or a maintenance of certification assessment.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this virtual course, learners should be able to:

  1. demonstrate enhanced medical knowledge and clinical skills across all major areas of endocrinology;
  2. apply knowledge and skills in diagnosing, managing, and treating a wide spectrum of endocrine disorders; and
  3. successfully complete the board examination for certification or recertification in the subspecialty of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism.

Target Audience

This course is intended for endocrine fellows planning for initial certification as well as practicing endocrinologists preparing for a Maintenance of Certification assessment, or physicians seeking an in-depth review of endocrinology. The secondary target audience includes advanced practice nurses and physician assistants.

CME Credit

Endocrine Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Endocrine Society designates this other material for a maximum of 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activities.

While offering CME credits noted above, this program is not intended to provide extensive training or certification in the field.

Maintenance of Certification (MOC)
