BACKGROUND: In order to identify any changes in the utilization of new and old techniques, we investigated trends in the operative management of cervical stenosis by orthopaedic surgeons applying for board certification. METHODS: We queried the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery database from 1998 to 2013 to identify all of the cervical spine procedures for stenosis that had been performed by candidates taking Part II of the licensing examination. Longitudinal trends were determined for the utilized approach, the individual procedures that had been performed, and whether a motion-preserving technique had been employed...

In response to growing concern about the declining performance on the American Board of Family Medicine Certification Examination, several strategies were employed to assist program directors with preparing their residents to take the examination. The effect of these efforts seems to have resulted in significant improvement in performance.

In this commentary we review the improvements in the pass rates for first-time American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Certification Examination test takers in the context of new tools and resources for program directors against the backdrop of a changing accreditation system and increased competition for a relatively fixed number of graduate medical education positions in family medicine. While causality cannot be established between the strategic initiatives of the ABFM and higher pass rates, we can all celebrate the new tools and resources provided to residents and program directors, and the improved performance of family medicine graduates on the certification examination...

The advent of electrical medical records brought image filing systems to many hospitals, as well as electrical endoscopic medical records. However, data integration among multiple different venders has not yet been accomplished. We start the Japan Endoscopic Database (JED) Project endorsed by Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society (JGES) from January 2015. The purposes of this project are as follows: 1) developing the world's largest endoscopic database generated from daily use of the reporting system 2) capturing the actual performance of endoscopic practice in Japan; and 3) standardizing the terminology and fundamental items for the registry of clinical studies...

The American board of internal medicine (ABIM) establishes standards for physicians. The American geriatrics society (AGS) is a not-for-profit membership organization of nearly 6,000 health professionals devoted to improving the health, independence, and quality of life of all older people. Beginning in 2013, ABIM redesigned its governance structure, including the role of the specialty boards. Specialty boards are charged with responsibilities for oversight in four main areas: (1) the assessments used in initial certification and maintenance of certification (MOC); (2) medical knowledge self-assessment and practice assessment in the specialty; (3) building relationships with relevant professional societies and other organizational stakeholders; and (4) issues related to training requirements for initial certification eligibility within the specialty...

An increasingly consumer-centric health insurance market has empowered patients to select the providers of their choice. There is a lack of studies investigating the rationale by which patients select a foot and ankle surgeon. In the present study, 824 consecutive new patients seeking treatment from 3 foot-ankle surgeons were consecutively administered an anonymous questionnaire prior to their first appointment. It included rating the importance of 15 factors regarding specialist selection on a 1 to 10 scale, with 10 designated " Very important" and 1 designated " Not important at all...

Aims: To study the incidence and aetiology of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in 1- to 35-year-olds in Sweden from 2000 to 2010. Methods and results: We used the database of the Swedish National Board of Forensic Medicine and the Swedish Cause of Death Registry and identified SCD cases by review of forensic files and death certificates. We identified 552 individuals with SCD in 1- to 35-year-olds; 156 (28%) were women. In 393 (71%), a forensic autopsy had been performed; in 131 (24%), a clinical autopsy had been performed; in 28 (5%) with no autopsy, a cardiac disease was diagnosed before death...

Pediatric pathology (PP) is a subspecialty of pathology encompassing disease states during human development from the fetus to young adult. Despite the existence of ACGME-accredited fellowship programs and opportunity for pediatric pathology subspecialty board certification, many pediatric pathology fellowship positions remain unfilled in North America. We sought to understand the difficulties in recruitment to the PP training programs by conducting a survey. A 3-pronged survey targeting pathology residents (PR), PP fellows and recent fellowship graduates (F&G), and PP training programs was conducted...
