Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future Survey
Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future is a collaborative effort that brings together multiple stakeholders to envision a system that is responsive to the needs of those who rely on it and that is relevant, meaningful and of value to physicians.
This ‘Vision Initiative’ includes physicians, professional medical organizations, national specialty and state medical societies, hospitals and health systems, the general public and patients, and the 24 Member Boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Together, they comprise a Commission that will lead the effort throughout 2018 and early 2019.
The Commission invites input from all stakeholders. By participating in a brief survey regarding the future of board certification, you will help inform the future of board certification. The survey will remain open for comment until April 30, 2018. We encourage you to complete the survey, if you have not done so already, and share it with your organizations and colleagues for them to participate as well.
