Department of Pediatrics Approved as Pediatric Portfolio Sponsor in American Board of Pediatrics Program

American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) sponsorship gives pediatricians a seamless opportunity to earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 4 credit for work they are already doing while participating in Department of Pediatrics quality improvement (QI) activities.

The Department of Pediatrics MOC Committee evaluates QI projects against the ABP's QI activity standards and approves projects for MOC Part 4 credit. All physicians actively participating in approved projects can earn MOC Part 4 credit. The Department of Pediatrics is working closely with the UPMC Quality Review Committee to streamline paperwork for MOC project applications.

For more information on how to get your QI project approved for MOC Part 4 credit, contact Debra Bogen, MD ( or Sarah Carr (
