Now here is an answer to the whole ABMS extortion racket!

Now here is an answer to the whole ABMS extortion racket! Tell them to shove their programs where the sun don’t shine!

Urology Times published this physician’s critique of MOC:

“I successfully completed the original certification process and the subsequent recertification process, but enough is enough. The ABU has strayed far beyond its original mandate to ensure excellence in urologic training and has added yet another onerous burden onto the backs of practicing urologists.

The 2002 Physician Charter, which served as the foundation of MOC, is a flawed and disingenuous document that has one surreptitious purpose: to give specialty boards more power and control over their diplomates. How dare the ABU question my demonstrated commitment to lifelong learning! How dare the ABU attempt to lecture me on professionalism and ethics! How dare the ABU place the “benefit of the public” above the welfare of its diplomates! The “public” doesn’t pay the ABU’s expenses.”
