To the Editor:
I took and passed the board exam this summer. Except for the registration process, the computer test went pretty smoothly. Later this year I’ll take the first self-assessment module.
My complaint is about the way the new requirements have been rolled out. Two of my partners and several other doctors I know took the boards in 2002 and will not have to start self-assessment modules until 2010. My unlucky partner and I will have taken a collective 22 self-assessment modules before those doctors even begin. My partner has so far refused to take his 2004 module. I guess I will take mine, but I am concerned I will be wasting my time and money if this requirement is changed.
