ABIM and regulatory vagaries….What is the True Value of Repeated Testing?


Hope you are enjoying the summer and family time. ABIM as part of their face saving efforts recently announced that sub-specialists need not take the general cardiology recertification examination going forwards. What does it mean to someone who wants to read an echocardiogram or interpret a nuclear scan or electrocardiogram if they are a subspecialist? You can longer do that? Will the hospitals allow their cardiology subspecialists practice their full breadth without general cardiology boards? The correct answer to this is yet to be seen and understood. A lot of sub-specialists whom I have talked to are still not sure about this. We should congratulate Heart Rhythm Society for the prompt and decisive leadership in tackling this specific issue and championing it.
