What the Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

cost you and your practice in time & money?

Dr Juliette Madrigal-Dersch MD

I went to medical school to take care of the ones that count.
Not to take unnecessary tests that
don’t help my patients or my practice.

Below is the time and money Dr Madrigal-Dersch spent on going through the MOC once.

This was the actual cost to Dr Madrigal-Dersch practice the the MOC.

Time to complete MOC in Dr Madrigal-Dersch’s office,

150 Hours
– Studying, testing etc.

30+ Hours – Staff Time (collecting data, imputing forms, talking with patients.
50 Hours – For patients to compete forms for MOC data.

  • time I was not able to spend with my family on trips,
  • time I was not able to spend with my patients,
  • time I will never get back.

Note: Data collected is actually used by pharmaceutical companies to identify areas
for new areas for possible drugs and increase profits.
