A recent observation from an Ohio physician regarding the MOC/OCC status of current FSMB President Humayun Chaudhry, DO:
Dr Talmage’s statement regarding Dr Chaudhry’s DO certification is rather interesting. Dr Chaudhry was board certified by the ABIM until 2006. Looking on the DO website one finds the following record (copied below) which does not specify any particular date of certification under the DO boards or that/if he is MOC compliant.
As the DO boards have only in the past year developed the OCC MOC equivalent-it is highly unlikely that he is “compliant with MOC OR OCC”.
The fact that the FSMB has a “policy for nonclinically active Physicians to allow them to document appropriate Continuing Professional Development as an alternative” as stated by Dr Talmage, is quite reassuring that for those “insiders of the FSMB” who chose to live above the laws dictated by the “Certification industrial Complex”, specifically our beloved ABIM, they can either switch out to some other program or simply create it “De Novo” as the president of the FSMB to meet their personal needs! Also important to recognize is the fact that the AMA PRA program has been documenting Continuing professional development/CME since the 1970 and very well thank YOU FSMB!
And our dear State Medical Board of Ohio has also been doing this for as long as I can remember-well over 30 years! Do we really need Dr Chaudhry to come to Ohio to recruit our medical board into his ‘”Certification industrial complex” or is it time to throw the FSMB and all their money grabbing schemes to the wind?
