MKSAP 16 can be used to meet requirements during 3.5 years of the 5-year credit period, beginning July 31, 2012 and lasting until Dec. 31, 2015. Fellows will then be required to earn a minimum of 100 credits in Group Learning (Section 1) or Self-Learning (Section 2), including a minimum of 40 credits during the fifth year of the MOC cycle.
