Shortening the residency requirement now would accomplish two things. First, it would encourage residents to concentrate on a research career by not penalizing them for taking an additional year of fellowship. Second, it would encourage more medical students to apply for MD/PhD programs for similar reasons. In both cases, it would increase the pool of endocrine researchers with a clinical background — a highly desirable and needed cohort.
A joint statement from the Endocrine Society, the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), and the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) expressed strong disagreement with the ACP’s new guidelines, which raised goal A1C levels to between 7% and 8% for patients with T2D.
Beyond dispelling the pernicious stereotypes surrounding diabetes, Hagan says, his job is "to make sure we clearly know where we're headed, and to make sure resources are aligned there."
To certify or not to certify, that is the question. There has been much discussion about board certification. It is expensive and time consuming. There is no evidence that it improves patient care. Changes have been made and more are to come, I’m sure. And yet, the question often comes up in my discussions with colleagues. Should we recertify? Should we get additional certifications?
