“Remember, board certification is supposed to be an option and not a requirement. Unfortunately, finding and keeping your dream job if you’re not board certified will add unwanted stress for you and your family.
And in case you’re wondering, I don’t work for or have anything to gain from informing you about any other board. I want you to know that you have other valid options for taking your boards, regardless of what you’re made to believe during residency.
So at this point, you may be asking yourself, why hasn’t an article like this ever been written before?
Well, the answer is quite simple: It’s called monopoly.”
Emmanuel K. Konstantakos is an orthopedic surgeon. Jeff Morris is chief executive officer, American Board of Physician Specialties.
They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, “You have options when it comes to board certification.”
