yikes. just read about that experience. total nightmare. but my money goes towards your being distracted by your other upcoming exam as the culprit. still, what a total waste. i'm still kinda livid that the class of 2010 is the first class that had to do step 2 cs (where it counted) *and* we still have to do oral boards. grrrrr....Congratulations to both of you. My patient was a nightmare--and I failed. Oh well, there's always next time.
I think DS's point was that for some of us it's more like 5-6 years away, and it's still as clear as mud just what we're supposed to be doing!Thanks everyone. Sad to hear about ones who did not pass.
@ Doc Samson- My MOC is 10 years away..so no worries for now..
@ Prominence- I took it on Oct 3rd.
There's that, but also the nebulous requirements that certain things are done in years 1-3, 4-7, and 8-10 of the recertification cycle. i.e., if you just passed the boards, there's a bunch of stuff you'll supposed to have done by 2013 in order to be on track for MOC in 2020 - just that no-one seems able to clearly define what that stuff is.I think DS's point was that for some of us it's more like 5-6 years away, and it's still as clear as mud just what we're supposed to be doing!
