What is the Performance Improvement Activities requirement?

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 certification cycle and when Performance Improvement Activities is due for your certification.

How will the ABFM know I’ve fulfilled my Performance Improvement Activities requirement through METRIC?

All modules of the METRIC program have been approved by the ABFM as an alternative activity for Performance Improvement Activities. The AAFP sends notification of all METRIC program completions hourly to the ABFM.

Do I have to be in the Family Medcine Certification cycle to use the METRIC program?

No. Any interested physician can use the program. However, to earn Performance Improvement Activities credit from the ABFM, you must be in the correct stage of your certification 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 certification cycle in which you need to fulfill Performance Improvement Activities.

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.
