Addiction Medicine has evolved in a Lord-of-the-Flies manner without regulatory scrutiny or oversight and an absence of the need to guard. They are the Robber barons of Science and Medicine who have bought and boondoggled their way into the Medical Profession and Society  and are poised to ruin both. It is time to take aim at these unsupervised pundits of authoritative opinion with facts, evidence base, and the scientific method.

  1. Just curious, but once addiction medicine is embraced by the ABMS in two years will you revise your posts? Frankly if they opened many of our boards to anyone who cared to take them a remarkable number of bright people would pass them without the rigor of residency or indignation of internships. I suspect that the powers that be know this hence the long and painful vetting process that goes on before one is deemed ‘board eligible’, a term that had stood for decades, then was deemed out of existence for a few years but now is back without much fanfare. And who put the ABMS in charge of anything? Why, they did that themselves. Funny how that works for some groups but is not appropriate for others. Oh well, all of this will be moot in a couple of years. Any comments about how the ABIM folded on their highly ordained MOC policies? Now that’s a story.

    So when the ABMS recognizes the ABAM will you rage against them? Any sense of consistency would demand something like that. I can’t wait, it will be great fun to watch. Endless amusement. Thanks!!
