Preparation tip:

"The EDX Self-Assessment Exam (SAE) helped me become familiar with the contents and format of the ABEM examination – especially the video part. A great study tool."

Changes to the MOCP Program

The American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine is excited to announce some changes to its Maintenance of Certification Program (MOCP).  Effective January 1, 2021, the MOCP will have a new way for Diplomates to assess their knowledge in a convenient, flexible, and relevant way.  In place of the MOCP exam will be our new requirement, CoreComp.  CoreComp is an online program that presents questions designed to ensure the core competency areas of EDX medicine are being met.  The MOCP Examination will be discontinued after 2020’s administration. Certification will never expire as long as the Continuous Certification requirements are met.  Grandfathered Diplomates (Lifetime certificates) do not need to participate in the Continuous Certification.  Further information will be provided as to how to access the CoreComp component once it is available.
