Medical board says MDs cheated

Wall Street Journal, June 9, 2010

The American Board of Internal Medicine is moving against nearly 140 doctors who it says cheated on the organization's certification exams by seeking out, sharing, and in some cases purchasing actual test questions from a board-review company. In suits filed in US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the ABIM alleges that five physicians infringed the organization's copyright on test questions. The suits also accuse them of misappropriating trade secrets and breach of contract, the Wall Street Journal reports.
