Can you haiku?


Contemporary Pediatrics challenges you to write a haiku expressing your feelings about maintenance of certification.

For some pediatricians, the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program has sparked fury, but can it spark poetry? Here's your chance to channel your angst and amperage into 3 lines, 17 syllables, of verse about MOC.

Send us your best 5-7-5 syllable haiku. We’ll pick the most creative and immortalize it-even award a suitable prize!

So rant, roar, preach, or praise, but ever so precisely. Here-we'll even get you started:

CME sufficed.

MOC's CME on steroids-

Follow the money.


MOC’s Parts 1 through 4

Just 24 hours in day

Still stuck at Part 2
