Collecting Practicing Physician Perceptions of Board Certification

An important new survey was launched today to gather information needed to provide strong, data-backed, counter arguments to the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Osteopathic Association that continue to advertise their lucrative Maintenance of Certification® (MOC®) and Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC) products. Thanks to social media, this survey has the potential to be the largest and most authoritative of its kind, but not without your help.

As the MOC® controversy continues, I encourage all practicing all US ABMS and AOA Board-certified physicians to share the survey with your colleagues and include your names and email addresses (not required) to improve the survey's integrity.

Please take about 10 minutes of your time to complete this survey to provide us with the data necessary to defend practicing physicians at a national level against regulatory capture and third party intrusion into our profession.

Shared on personal page and multiple physician only closed group pages. Time to shut this s**tshow down. Long past, actually.

Most likely MOC contributes to this:

There should be 860,000 comments on this blog in regard to this important survey. The ABMS should put MOC to a vote. Yay or Nay? It will be overwhelmingly NAY! End it.

I found the survey on this blogspot. Is there another way to disseminate this survey to all physicians?

The evidence points to MOC being a burden without benefit except to the people making a lot of money from this. Some doctor suicides are most likely suicides from sleep deprivation, stress, the perfectionist type personality common to many physicians (depending on specialty or circumstances)

But I am noticing Black Ops being done with people infiltrating medicine. Usually there is a military association or perhaps a religious cult/ sect. These people get extremely upset if something basic has to be explained to them that they should already know, then they go on the attack if they feel authority was challenged. Some of them are targeting people and seldom feel remorse of any kind. They are sociopaths with some amount of medical education, enough to use some lingo and fit in. (I background checked one and am shocked, though it all makes sense now)

They are hunters. Patients and doctors are at risk. So I would say any physician that calls them out on this or is a potential whistle-blower is going to be at high risk of "suicide" no matter how happy and looking forward to a long career and normal life. At this point, I am wondering if there is video of the hospital rooftop jumpers, and if they indeed were alone at the time of their "suicidal thoughts"

What has been grandfathered in is disturbing--and has never been expected to do MOC

The way that there is no on going conversation with the boards that shows compromise is scary.What will be next?
