The American Gastroenterological Association has already proposed an alternative to the maintenance of certification proposal: The Gastroenterologist: Accountable Professionalism in Practice. Now, the AGA has surveyed its members on their views on the MOC process.
Here are three points on gastroenterologists' perspectives on MOC.
• 93 percent think the current MOC model is burdensome and irrelevant to their practice.
• 88 percent think a high-stakes exam every 10 years is critical for recertification.
• 87 percent think the proposed G:APP model is an improvement over the current MOC model.
