Hand with marker writing What Do You Need To Know?The North Carolina AHEC Practice Support Program is an approved Project of ABMS Continuing Certification. Most ABMS Member Boards recognize this participation as an option to meet ABMS requirements. The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) also accepts ABMS credit for physician assistants.

Through this approval, physicians and physician assistants who work with an NC AHEC Practice Support coach to improve care for patients will meet the requirements of their specialty boards to maintain certification in their specialties. To qualify, physicians and physician assistants must have actively worked, for at least six months, with an NC AHEC Practice Support coach to improve patient outcomes/experiences or positively impact other aspects of their practice. Quality improvement, gap measures, and EHR Optimization are examples of what can qualify as improvement projects for the ABMS continuing certification.
