So what impact will this have exactly? Is it a big deal? Does this mean residents still need to have the numbers but just don't have to submit documentation for each one? Hoping someone knowledgeable about this can break it down for me :thumbup:

The ABPM looked at the pass rate of individuals who'd completed a 3 year program and noticed that nearly, if not all, of them had their cases and passed the certification exam. Sounded like they wanted to get rid of parts of the process that they felt weren't necessary to determine a pod's board status. If you pass the cert exam, you pass it. If you fail it, you fail it. No need to submit cases. At least that's the way I understood it.

I'll let attendings tell you what they think about the change itself, but I bet we could guess what most will say.
