The ABOMS Certification Maintenance (CM) program is a
comprehensive process providing verification that board-certified oral and
maxillofacial surgeons are continuously engaged in learning and developing
their skills within the specialty.
CM covers four objectives: Professional Standing, Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment, Cognitive Evaluation and Evaluation of Performance in Practice. Diplomates must continuously meet requirements each year, or they may jeopardize their certification.
Surgeons who are board-certified are required to adhere to the requisites each year of certification and can access all components of CM using their profiles. This 60-minute webinar aims to identify how to complete CM and clarify questions.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Review the new Certification Maintenance process.
- Discuss the Certification Maintenance objectives and why it is required.
- Maintain certification.
