Nominees sought for Board certification ‘Vision Commission’

A Planning Committee put together by various stakeholders for the “Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future” initiative has issued a Call for Nominations for individuals to serve on the Vision Commission.

Designed to be a collaborative and transparent process, the Commission will bring together multiple stakeholders to assess the current state of continuing board certification and envision its framework for the future.

The initiative’s Planning Committee will identify the construct and membership of the Commission, identify key questions for consideration by that Commission, and oversee a national opinion survey. The Commission will in turn gather information, hold hearings, address key questions and make recommendations for the future continuing board certification process.

The goal of the Vision initiative is to foster an inclusive, open, collaborative and candid dialogue across stakeholder groups to:

  • Consider a range of principles, frameworks and program models for continuing board certification.
  • Be responsive to the needs of those who rely on the credential: patients, hospitals, and medical practices.
  • Be relevant, meaningful and of value to physicians.
  • Create meaningful recommendations for the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Boards community.

The Call for Nominations offers specific information on the Commission, nomination process and criteria. Nominations are due by 9 p.m. on January 8, 2018. Commission members will be notified in late January 2018, with a public announcement of members scheduled in February 2018.
