Personal challenge and motivation compelled me to pass my ABPS board
exam. Measurement and confirmation of my own knowledge base
reinforced my self-confidence. The ABPS, with its history of inclusivity, has
allowed me to have a voice in the organization, while permitting me to
impact overall national patient safety and care through certification.
Participation in exam development afforded me the opportunity to witness
the rigorousness of the exam process and psychometrically sound product,
while developing meaningful collegiality, professional life enrichment, and
warding off burn out.
