This paper sets out some of the issues relating to certification of specialists. It first defines the purpose of certification as assuring the public of the level of competence of specialist practice. It then describes some of the issues involved, which include the assessment of competence, the need for public involvement, the issue of re-certification, and the problem of dealing with poor doctors. It concludes with a challenge to doctors to seize the opportunities and to enhance the quality of teaching and research in medical education.
