    MOC is crazy and unfair

    I attempted the (MOC) exam last fall and failed after hours of practice trying to prepare studying things I have not done in 20 years, i.e. vent settings and renal calculations.

    The knowledge that we are tested on is for people coming straight out of residency, not a PCP who has been in a successful office practice for 20 years. I was going to attempt to take it again in the fall of 2016, but only because my hospital, which I never admit to, requires it for me to remain affiliated with them even though I am using the hospitalist service 100%.  

    The whole thing is crazy. My specialty now is suboxone maintenance and there was not one question on the test concerning this.
