In 2010, the American Board of Anesthesiology instituted a new Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) Part IV activity requiring diplomates to attend and self-reflect on a simulation-based course in an American Society of Anesthesiologists-endorsed program. Although there are certain course requirements, much of the curriculum and structure of these MOCA activities is left to the discretion of the participating endorsed program. The ideal course would emphasize multimodality simulation-based activities that optimize diplomate education and satisfaction, while economizing faculty requirements. We describe of our course structure and content as a potentially useful template.
