Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®)

The U-M Department of Anesthesiology and Clinical Simulation Center are offering the Simulation Course for ABA Diplomates seeking MOCA® recertification. This course will satisfy the Part 4 Improvement in Medical Practice component for primary and/or subspecialty certification, including pediatrics. Information regarding requirements for fulfilling MOCA® is available at the ABA website. Simulation courses will continue to be a part of MOCA 2.0 beginning January 1, 2016. For more information regarding MOCA 2.0 Part 4 requirements, click here.  

Course Objectives

  1. Demonstrate the management of significant hypoxemia from any cause, including the difficult airway.
  2. Demonstrate the management of significant hemodynamic instability.
  3. Practice up-to-date techniques in a safe learning environment.
  4. Reflect on optimal teamwork, leadership and communication skills required in crisis management.
  5. Following the course, participants will implement the updated knowledge and skills in these areas that they learned from the course into their everyday practice.

The Simulation Course will begin with an orientation to the simulator and simulation environment.  Each participant will then have the opportunity to participate in a clinical scenario as the anesthesiologist, assistant to the anesthesiologist and observer.  The ABA stipulates that the course at a minimum cover the relevant topics of significant peri-operative hypoxemia and significant peri-operative hypotension.  The U of M course has been created in a manner that not only incorporates these basic events, but also challenges the participant with more complex clinical events and the challenges associated with perioperative teamwork and communication.  Scenarios will be followed by an interactive and instructive debriefing.  Specific courses for pediatric anesthesiologists are being offered twice each year.

Through involvement in this course, participants are expected to implement modifications in their practice based on what was learned during the course regarding management of peri-operative hypotension, hypoxemia and crisis resource management.  To receive credit for the course, participants will be required to submit a personal practice evaluation to the ABA within 1-3 months following course completion.  Participation in this course is not graded.
