The American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology are strongly committed to the promotion of professionalism and safe, high-quality care through professional self-regulation. We feel this is best accomplished through ongoing lifelong participation in high-quality, meaningful, and relevant learning activities as well as on-going assessment related to an otolaryngologist- head and neck surgeon’s current practice. We support the concept of designing learning and assessment activities that can be integrated into the physician’s normal workflow. We recognize that these activities require constant development and continuous improvement, including incorporation of feedback from practicing otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons.
