The Medical Review Officer Certification Council (MROCC) is a physician-based 501 (c) non-profit corporation offering MRO certification to physicians (M.D., D.O. or equivalent) who have had appropriate and sepcific training in the duties and the responsibilities of the professional medical review officer.
esting for substances of abuse, both alcohol and drugs, is now the rule rather than the exception in settings as diverse as the workplace, the doctor's office, and in many schools throughout the country. More than 20 million forensic drug test specimens are processed by certified laboratories every year, and the results of these laboratory tests are reviewed and interpreted by thousands of highly-qualified physicians acting as
MROCC-certified Medical Review Officers (MROs).
The MRO field is a complex and rapidly evolving area due to technical advances, regulatory changes, new patterns of abuse, and the ever-evolving bank of knowledge gained from past years of experience. Federal regulations require MRO qualification and re-qualification training followed by certification and re-certification by a nationally recognized MRO Certification board every 5 years.
And for recertifying MROs who regularly review drug test results and who are familiar with current federal regulations, MROCC has a distance learning opportunity that
totally eliminates the need to travel
to an MRO course or examination! [more]
The online exam permits physicians to take it whenever and wherever they want using a computer and high-speed Internet connection. With the online exam there is no need to remain after a training course, and gives - for those who wish - an opportunity to take a little more time to review the course materials. For recertifying MROs, the online exam offers even more - the privilege of logging on and off at-will until it is complete and ready to be electronically submitted.
