The UW Health MOC Portfolio Program provides an easy way for physicians to align the QI work they are doing at UW Health with MOC requirements in order to receive Part IV credit.

UW Health values this program and wants to support our physicians through this process. The MOC Portfolio Program is a win-win for UW Health: physicians participate and fulfill their individual MOC requirements, successful practices are disseminated, and the quality of our patient care is improved!

Vision for the Future ReportInterested in the future of MOC: Read the Final Report from the ABMS Vision Commission.

The UW Health MOC Portfolio Program supports and encourages the use of the UW Health Improvement Network (UWHIN) resources to support the work of all MOC Portfolio projects. All projects will require the completion of an A3 (learn more) by each participant in order to receive MOC Part IV. [Hear] from your colleague Dr. Michelle Kelly as she walks through her improvement using an A3.
