To the Editor:
After reading Dr. Kent Jeffery's comments [see “High praise for maintenance of certification,” Letters, May 2005], I now agree that more testing is better. Why not take a test every day? Better yet, why not take a test after every patient visit? We could all divorce our spouses, shun our kids, avoid vacation and make family medicine a priesthood-like calling. We can then focus our entire lives on taking tests to prove what medical school, residency, CME the old certification process and experience obviously have not.
