Board-certified in critical care and sleep medicine by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva formerly served as associate executive director for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva provided Maintenance of Certification (MOC) guidance to members.
The ABP granted the AAP Portfolio Sponsorship Status in November 2012. As a result of this status, the AAP is able to review MOC projects to determine whether they meet continuing medical education requirements for Part 2 (Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment) and Part 4 (Improving Professional Practice and Quality Improvement). The status also enables AAP to identify opportunities for collaboration among its groups that are working on quality improvement.
The AAP MOC Portfolio Program offers an opportunity for members to create and participate in quality improvement projects that will benefit children while simultaneously obtaining MOC credits. There is no fee for the application. The program offers guidance regarding ABP standards as well as quality improvement science mentorship. It also gives members opportunities to connect with other Academy groups.
