American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) President and CEO, David Nichols, MD, MBA, has written a letter to all certified pediatricians about Maintenance of Certification (MOC). You should receive a copy in the mail in the next few days. Also, the letter is available on our website.
In it, Dr. Nichols offers his personal reflections about the dialogue surrounding professionalism and the ABP’s efforts around MOC. He acknowledges the range of opinions about certification and details how the ABP has responded to critiques of the MOC program.
“The ABP is committed to 3 things: carefully listening to pediatricians, improving its programs, and holding fast to its mission,” he writes.
