Gastroenterology and hepatology societies announce new collaboration with the American Board of Internal Medicine

AASLD, ACG, AGA and ASGE today announced an agreement to collaborate with ABIM to explore the development of a new assessment pathway through which gastroenterologists and hepatologists can maintain board certification.

The goals for this innovative approach would be to enhance the range of options for maintenance of certification (MOC) available to gastroenterologists and hepatologists.


Given the complexity of developing a new option, the societies and ABIM do not yet know when it will be available for use by diplomates. However, work will begin in February and updates will be shared as soon as they become available. As this work continues, ABIM’s current MOC program requirements will remain in place, including the launch of the new, shorter Knowledge Check-In assessment option, which will be available this year in gastroenterology.


A leadership group comprising representatives from each of the four GI societies and ABIM will serve as a steering committee to oversee the collaborative effort.
