The current American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS)/American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) requirements for maintenance of certification (MOC) do not ensure that a practicing physician has maintained competency to practice neurology. The ABMS acknowledges this concept, and one ABMS member website included the following statement: “Many qualities are necessary to be a competent physician, and many of these qualities cannot be quantified or measured. Thus, certification is not a guarantee of the competence of the physician specialist.” In other words, board certification is meant to demonstrate competence, but the board does not guarantee competence. This concept nullifies the notion that the American College of Physicians (ACP) raised, that if you become involved in litigation, board certification will somehow protect you. The fact is that if you are negligent, no piece of paper hanging on your wall will protect you.

The costs to practicing neurologists, both in terms of time and money, to complete this process are considerable. In a recent study, the cost of physician compliance with MOC was found to range from $23,607 to $40,495 over a 10-year period, depending on specialty. Yet there is no published evidence that demonstrates that these requirements serve to improve quality of practice.
