The American Board of Medical Specialties, participating Member Boards, and the Multi-Specialty Portfolio Approval Program (Portfolio Program) has approved Dartmouth Health as a Portfolio Sponsor.
As a Portfolio Sponsor, Dartmouth Health is granted authority to approve internal Quality Improvement projects as meeting Portfolio Program Standards and Guidelines, thus allowing participating physicians to submit their project completions for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV from their (participating) specialty board.
The primary functions of the Dartmouth Health Part IV Program are to:
- Help physicians at Dartmouth Health document meeting Part IV requirements through their work on QI projects.
- Help align the QI efforts of Dartmouth Health physicians with priorities for their clinical settings and departments.
The Dartmouth Health Part IV MOC Program operates within the Center for Learning and Professional Development.
