The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) provides initial and maintenance of certification for physician assistants.

Thanks to a collaborative agreement between NCCPA and the ABMS Multispecialty Portfolio Program – that the NC MOC participates in – Certified Physician Assistants can receive high-value CME credit for participating in patient safety and performance improvement activities to improve the quality of patient care.

Certified PAs can now earn free Category 1 PI-CME credit with NCCPA for participating in QI initiatives within the NC MOC program.

To Apply for PI-CME credit, complete the attestion:

Attestation for Approved NC MOC Projects

NCCPA will notify PAs by email when these PI-CME credits have been logged in their record.

PAs receive 30 PI-CME credits for the completion of each QI Effort. NCCPA makes this effort even more valuable by doubling the first 20 PI-CME credits earned during a PA’s two-year CME cycle, for a total of 50 credits.
