Overview of the Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

Welcome to The American Board of Otolaryngology


The success of the oral exam depends on the volunteer efforts of over one hundred otolaryngologists who give of their time without compensation to ensure that the practitioners of the future will meet the standards they had to meet when they became board certified. The ABOto thanks these volunteers without whom this process would not be possible.

The mission of the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto) is to assure the public that, via its process of certification and lifelong maintenance of certification, its diplomates have met the ABOto’s professional standards of training and knowledge in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery.
