7. Is Maintenance of Certification a concept that's reached its end?
from MedCity News
From Sept. 10:
For the past many months, doctors cried out against the Maintenance of Certification (or MOC) process. Under the MOC program, required courses and modules need to be completed in order for a physician to remain “board-certified” by their specialty board. These requirements differ for each specialty. In general, doctors find the whole MOC process to be expensive, time-consuming with no added value and no proven benefit, either to the life-long learning of physicians or for improved patient clinical outcomes.
