Update on SHM SPARK MOC Points

Update on SHM SPARK MOC Points

Thank you for using the SHM SPARK self-assessment tool. Whether you purchased it in preparation for the Focused Practice in Hospital Medicine exam, or simply as a part of your commitment to ongoing learning, we hope you have found it valuable, engaging and easy to use.

This message is to inform you that, as part of its transition to partnership with the ACCME, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has eliminated the service SPARK relied upon to report MOC points claimed in April 2017. As of this date, SHM will no longer be reporting MOC points for completed SHM SPARK modules.

Please note that 10.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for Continuing Medical Education will continue to be available for the entire SPARK program through October 2018.

Thank you again for your commitment to lifelong learning, and to the specialty of hospital medicine.
