Part II – Life-Long Learning & Self-Assessment

MOC Part II runs in three-year cycles.  In order to complete Part II, and meet MOC requirements, you will need to self-attest to the following:

  • Completion of Self Assessment
  • Completion of 90 CME’s

Self-Assessment – The ABCRS currently requires that 50 of the 90 Category I CME hours completed over a three-year MOC cycle include a self-assessment activity. The activity must require a score of 75% or higher for the self-assessment to count for MOC.  There are no required minimum number of questions and repeated attempts are allowed.

Self-assessment is a written or electronic question-and-answer exercise that assesses the surgeon’s understanding of the material presented in the CME program. CARSEP and/or SESAP are suggested self- assessment material items. However, any approved CME credit that provides self-assessment greater than 75% or passing score (including CME components for MOL) will be accepted for Part II MOC.

The ASCRS CARSEP Program is available for purchase from the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.  For more information, call the ASCRS at 847-290-9184.

The ACS SESAP Program is available for purchase by visiting www.facs.org/education/sesap or by calling the American College of Surgeons at 800-251-3775 or 312-202-5474. When ordering by phone, be prepared to give your cardholder name, credit card account number and expiration date, and a mailing address.
