    MOC in Haiku

    Clearly, we touched a nerve when we invited you to put pen to paper to channel your feelings about the Maintenance of Certification program—in haiku form! We were amazed and impressed at the number of submissions and the creativity, humor and passion they captured.  Herewith (after much deliberation) are the winners by category.

    Sorry kids—can’t come

    To your concert. I’ve got to

    Enter my data
