Comment period open for board certification Vision Initiative report

The Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future Commission (Commission) has released its draft report for public comment. The report, which includes the Commission’s key findings and recommendations, is available on the Vision Initiative website for comment through Tuesday, January 15, 2019, at 11 p.m. CST.

In creating the draft report, the Commission considered the input received from key stakeholders reflected in the more than 21 hours of testimony and results of the open stakeholder survey posted this past summer on its website. The report outlines the Commission’s findings and a set of recommendations for future continuing certification programs.

The Commission was tasked with assessing the current state of continuing board certification and envisioning its framework for the future as a process that is valued by physicians, patients, hospitals and health systems. It includes representatives from the physician community as well as professional medical organizations, national specialty and state medical societies, hospitals and health systems, the general public and other stakeholders.

The group, which has met throughout 2018, is set to meet one last time to review and discuss the comments received and to make revisions to the draft before submitting its final report to the Board of Directors of the American Board of Medical Specialties in February 2019.
