The date on which you paid your ACOG dues may affect which application you receive.


If you're current with your ACOG dues and paid more than one week ago, please provide ABOG with your receipt of payment to ACOG. ACOG typically sends the receipt via email, and you can forward that email to moc@abog.org. Once ABOG receives proof of payment, the MOC department can process an override within our system to accurately reflect your ACOG membership.


If you paid your ACOG dues within the last few days, please allow 2-3 business days for processing. Once the file is successfully exchanged, your application and/or prompt for payment will automatically update.


If you're not current with your ACOG dues and want to provide payment, please contact them directly. Please call the Membership Division at (202) 863-2455.

It typically takes 2-3 business days for the data exchange to take place between ACOG's system and ABOG's. Once that occurs, your ABOG Portal will automatically update. In the interim, please let ABOG know if you have any questions or concerns by emailing moc@abog.org.

Typically, diplomates print the list of articles completed and highlight the article titles they feel are relevant.

The system will not allow you to select the additional 15 articles until you've completed the 30 that are required.

Option 3:

External CME Option

  • Pay MOC fee of $275.
  • Complete all MOC activities and meet all requirements.
  • Diplomate obtains 25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits on his/her own in 2019 (ABOG will audit).
  • No CME credits earned for completion of MOC requirements.

Option 3 is relevant for diplomates who are not ACOG members and do not need or want to secure CME credits through ACOG. Instead, these diplomates prefer to secure CME credits on their own their other sources.

You will still need to complete your requirements in order to maintain your certification.

ABOG will perform an audit in which diplomates will be randomly selected to turn in their continuing medical education credits. It is recommended that you keep CME credits for your documentation if you choose this option just in case ABOG audits you and requests for you to submit your credits for the year.
