Can other people use my NEJM Knowledge+ product?

We strongly recommend that you do not share your NEJM Knowledge+ account information with anyone. NEJM Knowledge+ uses an adaptive learning engine that provides each user with a personalized learning experience and performance data. If you share your account with other people, you will not get the full benefit of the product. Additionally, the CME credits (and, where offered, MOC points) you earn are associated with your account only and cannot be transferred to others.

Are my data secure?

As an individual purchaser, your progress and performance data are yours alone. We have a 100% threshold for performance to earn CME credits and MOC points, and we give you multiple tries to get each question correct. All that your CME transcript or submission to the ABIM indicates are the questions you’ve answered correctly.

How can I earn CME credits with NEJM Knowledge+?

All of our questions have been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. You will receive one credit for every six questions you answer correctly.

How can I earn ABIM MOC points with NEJM Knowledge+?

ABIM MOC points are available with NEJM Knowledge+ Internal Medicine Board Review. You automatically earn one MOC point for every six questions you answer correctly for up to 270 MOC points. When you sign in after purchasing the product, you may add your ABIM number and date of birth to your profile, which will enable us to seamlessly transmit the MOC points you have earned to the ACCME, which automatically sends this data to the ABIM each night. You will see these updates listed as NEJM Knowledge+ Internal Medicine Board Review on your ABIM profile the following day. You can also provide this ABIM number and date of birth later, by editing your profile.

Where can I learn more about the ABIM MOC process?

The ABIM MOC requirements changed as of January 2014 and again in February 2015. We have outlined the changes here. Or, you can find them at the ABIM website.
