Might work as some kind of poll.

Fortunately I've done a fellowship recently enough that I'm clear for this reporting cycle. Unfortunately, however, there aren't many programs directly addressing FP. Which makes the process so much more enticing. For PI/QA activities, some offices are addressing this in alternative ways via separate application to ABPath. This is probably what we'll do (it's cheap and relatively easy, if accepted by ABPath), but right now I'm the only one in the office who has to go through MOC -- so I'm not entirely sure yet.

What's become increasingly annoying is that one must have all their reporting information in by Jan 31, and they have to input it through PATHWay, but PATHWay for MOC still isn't functional yet -- it "will be available by the end of December." But I suppose that's another topic.

I do the CAP PIP, Non-Gyn Cyto, and FNA programs.

Looking at what abp puts out, it seems that a lot of activities would actually qualify. For example, if you do any inspections for CAP or any departmental QA, those are activities that would qualify.
