DynaMed and DynaMedex now offering maintenance of certification to American Board of Pediatrics board-certified pediatricians

Ipswich, MA -- October 27, 2022. American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) board-certified pediatricians can now earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) through EBSCO Information Services' (EBSCO) DynaMed and DynaMedex. These point-of-care tools are part of EBSCO's Clinical Decisions support solutions, intended to improve patient outcomes by providing evidence-based information to physicians at the point of care.

ABP board-certified pediatricians may now earn Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (Part 2) MOC points when using DynaMed and DynaMedex. These self-assessment points support pediatricians to stay current with the latest clinical knowledge and help them assess and improve their skills. To earn MOC points for internet point-of-care activity through DynaMed and DynaMedex, pediatricians can easily set up an account, complete continuing medical education (CME) activity at their convenience, and credits are reported to the ABP.

DynaMed Senior Deputy Editor Scott Barron, MD, FAAP, says this added feature supports pediatricians in their quest for continuous learning. "In today's world of ever-changing information and clinical knowledge, it can be challenging for physicians to find time to stay current with continuing medical education credits. By offering MOC to ABP-certified pediatricians, we look to support pediatricians on their path to clinical improvement, while assuring that pediatric patients are receiving optimal care."

Pediatric Associates Family of Companies Pediatrician Dr. Fabiana H. Izquierdo says she is very excited and pleased to know that from now on, any board-eligible or certified pediatrician who uses DynaMed or DynaMedex can obtain ABP MOC Part 2 points. "I am thankful for how receptive the ABP and DynaMed were, and how quickly they made this happen. I hope this improvement helps pediatricians become, or remain, board certified."
