I'm not warning family docs about those exams however. I'm warning docs who don't actively see patients about something far worse.
If you don't see patients, you need to do one of 3 "alternative modules". As of June 2014 the choices are:
- cultural competency
- hand hygiene
- information management (MIMM)
Emily did hand hygiene. It was annoying and hard on the hands, but pleasantly mindless.
I'm a computer geek, so I thought information management might be interesting.
Oh, fool that I was. I am a broken man on a Halifax pier. Halfway through the exercise I fell sobbing to the floor, begging Emily to end my suffering. By the end, I thought of Winston Smith. I have foresworn my career. Never again shall I speak of the role of software in medicine. I shall become an itinerant monk, clothed in rags, ranting before the doors of America's medical schools...
Do cultural competency.
