Examiner American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
This past weekend I served as an examiner for the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This means that together with several other surgeons at our own expense we traveled to Washington, D.C., to test other physicians who want to become certiﬁed by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
The entire weekend was dedicated to the examination. There are no breaks just dedicated work. The Board and all of the physicians who served as examiners are determined to maintain the highest standards for Facial Plastic Surgery. Sunday evening as I was on the Northeast Regional Amtrak train heading home I wondered how many other professions, at their own expense, would travel and spend a weekend dedicated to maintaining the highest standards for their profession.
