Maintenance of Certification Portfolio Program

The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) developed the Pediatric Portfolio Sponsor Program for organizations that are managing many Maintenance of Certification (MOC)-approved Quality Improvement (QI) projects. As an approved Portfolio Sponsor, UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh evaluates their own QI projects against the ABP standards and approves QI projects internally for MOC credit.

Children's Hospital was approved by the ABP as a portfolio sponsor in 2019.  The MOC Portfolio Committee was formed to develop and launch the ABP Portfolio Sponsor Program for the Department of Pediatrics (DOP).

The main responsibility of the MOC Committee is to review MOC QI projects submitted by DOP faculty against the ABP standards and approve projects which meet these standards. The secondary responsibility of the MOC Committee is to provide guidance and suggestions for improvement for those projects which do not meet ABP standards or meet ABP standards but may still have opportunities for improvement regarding project design.
