Part 3: Assessment of Knowledge, Judgment, and Skills
Last verified on January 22, 2019myABR.
Overview of the OLA ProcessWithin the OLA product, diplomates will be provided two question opportunities each week. Question opportunities will be available for four weeks to allow maximum diplomate flexibility. After opening a question, diplomates will be allowed a limited amount of time to answer the question and will learn immediately whether they answered correctly. In addition, they will receive a brief explanation of the correct answer, as well as a reference. OLA is designed to have minimal impact on a diplomate’s workday and requires no time away from work or travel expense. The potential for retesting areas of weakness provides a further opportunity for diplomates’ self-assessment of their professional growth.
ImplementationOLA will be available to all diagnostic radiology diplomates in early 2019. OLA for radiation oncology, medical physics and interventional radiology diplomates will follow in 2020. To ensure your certificates remain valid, please continue meeting requirements for Parts 1, 2, and 4 of MOC and make your yearly attestations in myABR. The ABR will post information, on the ABR website and will periodically report progress regarding this change through its existing communications. Any major developments will be announced as needed through direct diplomate notifications. The ABR has also posted Frequently Asked Questions about OLA.
