Purpose

Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia Part IV Requirement: Simulation Education Course

The ABA’s Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) program consists of four parts. Full credit for Part IV, also known as Practice Performance Assessment and Improvement (PPAI), can be obtained by attending one Simulation-based CRM course and completing the follow-up questionnaire every five years.

The Penn State College of Medicine Clinical Simulation Center is an ASA-accredited Simulation Program offering ABA endorsed courses eligible for MOCA credit. Participants must be Board-Certified or Board-Eligible Anesthesiologists, regardless of whether MOCA credit is sought.

Anesthesiologists who achieved ABA Board Certification in 2004 or later are required to participate in appropriate activities that meet the minimum standards every 5 years. Completing a Simulation Education Course at an endorsed Simulation Center and reporting the Performance Improvement Plan meets this minimum standard.

Visit the ABA website for further information about all MOCA requirements.

Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Demonstrate appropriate recognition and medical response to hemodynamic variability in a simulated case
  • Demonstrate appropriate recognition and medical response to a difficult airway situation
  • Demonstrate and practice teamwork and communication skills in the context of anesthesia practice
