Washington State Neurological Society in conjunction with the American Medical Association calls for the elimination of mandatory exams for Maintenance of Certification. We also oppose any requirements for MOC that have no demonstrable benefit to patient care. In conjunction with Washington State Medical Association, WSNS supports alternative pathways to board recertification and Maintenance of Certification (ie. National Board of Physicians and Surgeons).
The government of the State of Oklahoma has enacted legislation prohibiting the use of MOC for licensure, reimbursement, employment or admitting privileges. The WSNS supports similar legislation for the State of Washington.
