Dr. Paul Kempen’s recent guest editorial about MOC (‘Maintenance of Certification important and to whom?’) includes the inaccurate assertion that the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) ‘envisioned coupling MOC as a requirement for state license renewals as their Maintenance of Licensure (MOL) program’. The FSMB has never advocated that physicians become specialty board certified as a condition of licensure or licensure renewal, and in fact, has very clearly stated publicly the opposite MOC should not be a requirement for MOL.(Published: 5 July 2013)Citation: Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives 2013, 3: 21670 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/jchimp.v3i2.21670
