The ABR has named 12 members from across the country to its first MOC Advisory Committee for Interventional Radiology. Members were nominated by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), the American College of Radiology (ACR), and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
The committee’s mission is to evaluate the ABR’s MOC program from a participant’s vantage point and offer suggestions for improvement and enhanced user experience while maintaining a program that is navigable and, ideally, integrated into daily workflow.
Members serve an initial three-year term with the option for a second three-year term. They will meet in person at SIR and RSNA annual meetings and take part in conference calls.
