*SNM’s program is Practice Performance Assessment, which is consistent with the ABNM’s Practice Performance Assessment (PPA). SNM’s PPAP is also consistent with the ABR’s Performance Quality Improvement (PQI), the ACPE’s Revised Standards and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and the ARRT’s proposed Continuous Maintenance and Certification. All programs require the same processes and outcomes for diplomates.

**Recommended timeline for completion by diplomate in 10-year MOC cycle.

During the first year of diplomates’ 10-year MOC cycle, they are required to learn about the process of completing MOC Part IV requirements. Some boards require diplomates to not only indicate they have learned about MOC Part IV, but also to indicate what education activity they completed.
