MOC survey results

The Academy recently conducted a poll of our members in order to take a pulse of the profession when it comes to their opinion of the American Board of Dermatology’s Maintenance of Certification program as it is currently administered. The poll was conducted at the request of the AAD Advisory Board; the results will be shared with the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) at the same time we are notifying our members. The results are available for member download here.

Meanwhile, the American Board of Medical Specialties, which oversees the ABD and other specialty certifying boards, announced in late September that it will be establishing a “Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future” commission to “vision a system of continuing board certification that is meaningful, relevant and of value, while remaining responsive to the patients, hospitals and others who expect that physicians specialists are maintaining their knowledge and skills to provide quality specialty care.” A final report from this commission is due to all ABMS certifying boards in early 2019.
