ABSTRACT:

Successful completion of the General Pediatrics (GP) certification examination is one of the requirements for initial certification in GP by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). In addition, the continued demonstration of a core set of knowledge, as demonstrated by successful completion of the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) examination, is one of the requirements needed to maintain certification. Test committees comprised of practicing general pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, and pediatric educators routinely review the content specifications for these examinations.

ABSTRACT:

Comment On
Influence of changes in supply on the distribution of pediatric subspecialty care.

The article by Mayer and Skinner1 illustrates how far we have come in addressing pediatric medical subspecialty workforce shortages in the United States. Addressing the subspecialty shortage is integrally tied to career interest in pediatrics. Most individuals entering residency in pediatrics have not decided whether primary care or subspecialty care lies in their future. With a few exceptions, one must complete training in general pediatrics prior to...

Objective

Study Design
We conducted a 12-item mail survey of 1693 diplomates with permanent certificates. Frequency distributions were calculated for all survey items. χ2 statistics were used to explore associations between the variables.
