Letter: Certification is waste of time and money

Article

Critics of maintenance of certification should make their opinions known to the certifying boards

I am board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, but I agree with critics who believe that certification is a waste of time and money.

Critics need to voice this opinion with those insurers and hospitals that use board certification as a criterion for privileges or membership. Advising the credentialing boards themselves to self-destruct and end their gravy train will predictably fall on deaf ears.
