Background and Purpose

Modifying the Continuing Certification Program (CCP) was identified by certificants as a priority of the organization in a 2020 survey. After careful consideration, the Board determined that to ensure the Continuing Certification Program best meets the needs of certificants and aligns with what other medical boards are implementing for recertification, it was imperative to explore modifying the CCP.

Over the past two years, HMDCB has taken a deliberate and thoughtful approach to determine how best to modify the program. A task force of certificants partnered with HMDCB staff and a certification consultant to gather certificant feedback, complete an environmental scan of how other physician boards design their recertification programs, review best practices in adult learning theory, and draft several program changes that were thoroughly investigated for feasibility and value. Upon completion of this work, it was determined that a longitudinal assessment model would provide the most value for certificants.

The goal of this new program is to provide opportunities for continued learning and accurately assess the competency, skill, and judgement of certified physicians on a continuous basis.
