The Quarterly Questions Pilot is being developed as a future alternative to the DOCK Examination. The pilot includes 50 questions (40 fundamental knowledge questions and 10 journal article-based questions) delivered online, on-demand via computer, tablet, or mobile device. Participants have one minute to answer each multiple-choice knowledge question (five minutes for article-based questions) and receive instant feedback about correct and incorrect answers. Completion of all questions and achievement of an 80% correct on all article-based questions also earns diplomates 7.5 CME credits. No registration is required--diplomates can join at any time. Participants tell us they’re enjoying the hybrid learning and assessment process—96% say they would recommend participation in Quarterly Questions to a friend or colleague. To learn more, visit
