MOC – a Solution in Search of a Problem


Doctors who completed their training in the early 1990′s, came into practice being told that their Board Certifications would be valid for just 10 years, with the need for re-testing every 10 years. The premise behind this concept was that physicians who participated in MOC found great value in it and that patients demanded that their doctors participate in MOC.
Having re-certified in 2005, and finding no real benefit to my practice, and feeling rather humiliated by the methods utilized by the Board to ensure a “secure” exam, I decided to query my colleagues and patients about their feelings towards MOC.
