Question of the Week (QOW) is designed to walk you through a probative design of case studies.
Each week (except for the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s Day) you’ll receive an email letting you know a new QOW is published and offering you a link to answer the question.
Throughout the year, a total of 50 questions are published in a user-friendly format, allowing for more continuous MOC engagement.
Answer 20 questions correctly and you’ll earn 10 Part 2 Self-Assessment points. There is no maximum number of Part 2 points that you can earn with QOW in a five year MOC activity cycle. Continued Medical Education credit is not available for this activity.
You don’t have to answer one each week. The questions, once released, remain available to you in the archive for three years from the release date.
You choose when and how to complete the available QOW’s -- at your desk, waiting in line, or on-the-go!
Once you’ve answered the QOW, you can even discuss them with your peers by posting comments.
|The Case sets the stage for the specific patient scenario or issue being covered in that week's QOW.|
|The Pre-Test gives you the opportunity to try your hand at the question, but this attempt is not held against you.|
|The Abstract outlines the concepts or breakthroughs from a recent journal or publication.|
|The Commentary brings everything full circle by taking the abstract's findings and applying it to the case scenario and the real world.|
|The Final Attempt is where you answer the question for credit and receive immediate feedback. Answering 20 QOW's correctly results in 10 Part 2 points.|
|The Medical Pearl is an added bonus of interesting information provided as a reward for getting a question correct.|
|The Comment Section allows you to share your thoughts and engage in discussions in the community forum.|
