Hi Mary,


I'm curious - what is the library's role in the MOC program?  Do you create the reading list or help create it, or is that done by an ACOG committee and the library is mostly responsible for distribution?  We (College of Family Physicians) have a maintenance of proficiency <>  program but the requirements are a bit different.  Thanks for any information!
