What is the MC-FP Part IV requirement?

Maintenance of Certification requirements for family physicians are established and governed by the American Board of Family Medicine.(www.theabfm.org)

For the most up-to-date requirements, visit the ABFM website to learn about current requirements, including where you are in the recertification cycle and when MC-FP Part IV is due for your certification.

How will the ABFM know I’ve fulfilled my MC-FP Part IV requirement through METRIC?

All modules of the METRIC program have been approved by the ABFM as an alternative activity for MC-FP Part IV. The AAFP sends notification of all METRIC program completions hourly to the ABFM.

Do I have to be in the Maintenance of Certification recertification cycle to use the METRIC program?

No. Any interested physician can use the program. However, to earn Part IV credit from the ABFM, you must be in the correct stage of your recertification cycle. 

The date that you complete your baseline chart review and the date that you complete the METRIC module must both be in the stage of your recertification cycle in which you need to fulfill MC-FP Part IV.

I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). Can METRIC help me fulfill my MOC Part IV requirement?

Yes. The ABIM accepts completion of the METRIC program under the Self-Directed PIM(www.abim.org) for MOC Part IV. Please review the ABIM website(www.abim.org) for specific requirements.
