The ABPTS Maintenance of Specialist Certification is a model for certification that focuses on continuing competence of the physical therapist specialist. This page covers MOSC timeline for specialists entering into the program.

All individuals whose certification expiration is 2023 or beyond will follow the MOSC process.
