MOC Exam

Please Note: Beginning in 2018, interventional radiology/diagnostic radiology (IR/DR) diplomates who need to take a traditional MOC Exam will take only the IR portion of the IR/DR Certifying Exam. If a Subspecialty MOC Exam is needed, IR/DR diplomates will take the DR Certifying Exam and select the subspecialty area for all elective modules.
