In the ongoing marathon of my professional career, I jogged past another
milestone yesterday—I completed my latest emergency medicine recertification
examination. Using the authorized No. 2 pencil, I carefully filled in a bunch
of little circles, hoped that they were the correct ones, handed the answer
sheet to the proctor, and drove off quickly into a New Jersey sunset. Yesterday
was the 22nd anniversary of my relationship with the American Board of Emergency
Medicine, which makes me an undisputed veteran of the academic wars.
