When nearly all of our online CME courses are eligible to satisfy MOC Part II requirements, it's easy to find substantive risk solutions that meet physicians' specialized needs.
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) have established two distinct databases for certified physicians to identify board approved educational activities that meet the Part II standards of MOC.
As Part II of the MOC requirements, these courses are available through our subsidiary risk management site, Medical Interactive Community (MI). While our courses may be accessed by any physician directly through MI, LAMMICO is pleased to pass on an additional no-cost benefit directly to those we insure when they access their Member Login.

Physicians earn Board certification as a means of demonstrating expertise in their medical specialty. Initial certification is achieved through an intense testing and eligibility process. To maintain certification over years of practice, a physician remains competent through continuing their education along with other professional accomplishments. Each medical specialty has specific requirements for physicians to maintain their certification. The MOC program provides physicians with a formal mechanism to maintain certification through continuous, specialty-specific learning, assessment and improvement activities through a four part MOC framework.
Through the LAMMICO subsidiary, Medical Interactive Community, online CME is available for public access for a small fee, or can be purchased in bulk for medical groups or facilities at a discounted rate.
