Credit Hours

Credit hours for MOC Section 1 and Mainpro+ (1cr/hr) are one credit per hour. Count up the educational hours, subtracting all breaks, lunch, social activities, networking, AGMs, poster viewing, and any unstructured learning time. The result is the number of the credits that a program is granted as the eligible maximum credit amount.

Credit hours for MOC Section 3 are three credits per hour. The educational hours are counted the same way, and the credits are auto-tripled upon entry when they are claimed by the physician in the Royal College portal.

Credit Longevity

MOC Section 1 and Mainpro+ Group Learning credits are good for one (1) year from activity start date.  MOC Section 3 Assessment credits may be approved for up to three (3) years.

Content Repeatability

Content may be repeated within an accreditation/certification period, but the content may not change post-approval (excluding rounds). New content requires a new application, regardless of the timeframe.
