STRONGLY OPPOSED. This is absolutely crazy.
 

The worst possible idea for the following reasons:

1. Confuses the already confused public.

2. Fails to protect them from malpractice and actually encourages it.

3. Takes the incentive out of pursuing University and Hospital based specialty training. We can be whatever specialty we feel like being that day and  just advertise it.

4. Makes our profession look both reckless and foolish.
