“Getting MOC Part IV credit for our physician participants was a major benefit for our project. This allowed us to give something back to everyone who engaged and worked hard on our initiative. I would encourage any group working on a QI project to work with NC MOC to make sure they take advantage of the opportunity to fulfill MOC requirements.”
