ABAM Diplomates


Transitional Continuous Certification (TraCC) Program Requirements

The following requirements can be completed by logging into your TraCC portal.

A. Pay Annual Fee

B. Licensure and Professionalism (Part I)

  • Diplomates must possess a valid, full, and unrestricted medical license.

C. Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment (Part II)

  • Each year Diplomates are required to complete 26 AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ which may come from a combination of:

    A. Self-Assessment Modules (SAM):
    A minimum of 9 SAM Credits every Year

    This is completed by selecting 9 approved articles that are most clinically relevant to their practice. The list of articles and links to them can be found on the Educational Activities Tab.

    A score of 75% or higher must be attained on the self-assessment quiz for each article: the quiz may be repeated if necessary. One (1) CME is granted for each successfully passed SAM. These credits will count towards the overall requirement of 26 AMA PRA Category 1 credits™.

    B. Continuing Medical Education (CME): 17 additional CME credits every year

    In addition to the 9 SAMs, each Diplomate is required to complete at least 17 AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ in addiction medicine every year. These may be earned by completing any combination of additional SAMs, ABAM Recommended CMEs, or Self-Reported CME activities.

  • A score of 75% or higher must be attained on the self-assessment quiz for each article: the quiz may be repeated if necessary. One (1) CME is granted for each successfully passed SAM. These credits will count towards the overall requirement of 26 AMA PRA Category 1 credits

    C. Self Reported CMEs

    Except for the minimum of 9 CME credits from completed SAMs, Diplomates may acquire the remaining required 17 CME credits from sources other than the MOC and Education Portal, as long as they are addiction medicine related. If you have a question about a desired external MOC CME qualifying activity, please contact us.

D. Part II Cognitive Assessment Examination:

This every 10 year re-certification exam requirement has been dropped in keeping with trends in American Board of Medical Specialties MOC standards. The 300-question ADePT exam which models Part III re-certification exams is available in this package.

1. Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) – Up to 128 CME Credits Available

Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) provide a unique opportunity to keep up with the latest developments in addiction medicine. They offer a comprehensive collection of relevant, evidence-based content, can be used as a tool to test your knowledge and skills, and one (1) CME credit is given for each completed SAM. There are four (4) questions per module and immediate feedback is given upon completing the self-assessment.

By completing evidence-based addiction articles with immediate self-assessment, physicians and medical professionals may increase their confidence and better assure their patients that they have aspired to a high standard of education and professionalism in the field. Continuous development of your knowledge set assures the public that a high standard of care is being advanced.

2. Addiction e-Practice Test (ADePT) – 24 CME Credits Upon Successful Completion

ADePT is a proven knowledge self-assessment and Board exam preparation tool developed without industry support or influence by an academic panel of addiction medicine experts from the American College of Academic Addiction Medicine (ACAAM). ADePT has been optimized based on psychometric analysis performed by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and meets the high standards expected from an actual board exam. The formatting of ADePT is the closest available to the actual Board exam. The exception is that physicians have unlimited attempts until a passing score is achieved plus three additional retakes.

This evidence-based, referenced, cognitive assessment tool was developed initially as an in-training assessment tool for addiction medicine fellowships. It is aimed at identifying areas of strengths and weaknesses in addiction medicine knowledge.

  • 300-question practice test (Includes 100 bonus questions. The ABPM exam is 200 questions.)
