What Do Physicians Have to Say About the Knowledge Check-In in 2019?

ABIM Blog (06/20/19)

More than 750 physicians enrolled in the American Board of Internal Medicine's Knowledge Check-In (KCI) to fulfill their assessment requirement of the board's Maintenance of Certification program this spring. Feedback among participants remained generally positive, especially concerning the flexibility of testing location. Also appreciated by diplomates was UpToDate access, with comments noting that it more closely mirrored how they referenced information in practice. One participant suggested that "more time should be allocated for exam and board should be topic wise and they can test you multiple times in a year." Notable comments about UptoDate included a desire to have a lexi-com type program for drug-drug interactions, as well as access to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Public Health Service guidelines. This year, the KCI launched in Gastroenterology, Rheumatology, Cardiovascular Disease, Geriatric Medicine, Hematology, Pulmonary Disease, Infectious Disease, and Endocrinology. Several more KCI administrations are planned for later this year, and eight additional specialties will launch in 2020.
