ABEM MyEMCert MOC Program Information
On March 31, 2021, ABEM introduced a new way to stay certified, MyEMCert, designed with the uniqueness of Emergency Medicine in mind, and informed by the preferences of ABEM-certified physicians. This program replaced the ConCert exam after 2022.
MyEMCert will include eight presentation-based modules, each consisting of up to 50 questions. Approximately 80% of the questions will be related to the specific module topic, and 20% related to key advances in the specialty.
MyEMCert Module Listing
- ABDOMINOPELVIC: Presentations may involve the abdomen, pelvis, flank, gastrointestinal, genitourinary system, and early pregnancy complications, as well as abnormal signs and symptoms such as fever, jaundice, pain, rash, hematuria, and nausea/vomiting.
- ABNORMAL VITAL SIGNS AND SHOCK: Presentations may involve almost any condition with a substantial physiologic effect, as well as shock from any pathophysiologic origin.
- TRAUMA AND BLEEDING: Presentations may involve traumatic injuries involving any organ system, surgical complications, and any sources of bleeding (including non-traumatic hemorrhage).
- THORACORESPIRATORY: Presentations may involve the chest wall, heart, lungs, and great vessels. These presentations may include, but are not limited to chest pain, shortness of breath, rash, and other abnormal signs or symptoms.
- NEUROLOGY: Presentations may involve alterations in consciousness resulting from neurologic disease and other transient conditions that may mimic a neurologic etiology.
- SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH: Presentations may involve psychobehavioral conditions, psychosocial factors, and social determinants of health.
- HEAD AND NECK: Presentations may involve the head, eyes, ears, nose, throat, and neck and may include, but are not limited to, signs and symptoms such as pain, rash, infection, visual changes, and bleeding.
- NONTRAUMATIC MUSCULOSKELETAL; Presentations may involve bones, joints, muscles, and connective tissues. These presentations may include, but are not limited to pain, swelling, numbness, rash, and infections.
MyEMCert will affect physicians differently depending on the year their current certification expires. View ABEM requirements based on when your current ABEM certification expires using the ABEM Reqs tool.
Med-Challenger has a dedicated MyEMCert Review Subscription for all eight MyEMCert modules.
MyEMCert modules are organized by content area, allowing you to select, master, and retain information related to specific clinical topics. You may complete the modules in whatever order you choose. Answers with rationales will be provided immediately.
MyEMCert is open book, so study requirements are minimal. However, you must take the modules by yourself.
You will have 4 hours of total time to complete each module. However, you can pause the module while taking it. (NOTE: after 15 minutes your session will time out for security reasons.)
Pilot participants have offered their views on how you might prepare for taking the modules:
- Block off time and choose a location where you can focus
- Use resources and tools you normally would on a shift
- Decide what references you want on hand, including the Key Advance synopses
