Passing a test. After all the training that doctors do, they still need to pass a written and sometimes also an oral exam, in their specialty area, in order to be certified by their specialty board. Some doctors don't bother with the test, and some don't test well even though they are great doctors. Most of us take the test and retake it every 5-10 years so that we can prove that we know what we are doing. .
