Fellows In-Training Exam: Information for Program Directors and Proctors
Information for Program DirectorsInformation for Exam Proctors
The Fellows In-Training examination (ITE) was developed by members of the ID Training Program Directors Committee in conjunction with the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) to assess medical knowledge of fellows in infectious diseases fellowship programs.
The IDSA will collaborate with the NBME to assist program directors in the preparation of test sites for fellows to sit for the exam, along with overall exam administration.
Registration for the ITE begins in early November. An email will be sent to all program directors with instructions when registration begins. Note: Program directors may NOT be in the exam room and may not be proctors.
The ITE is designed as a teaching tool, not pass/fail exam. The correct answers to questions will not be given. The total examination score will be computed as a standard scaled score and provided to the examinees. Graphical performance profiles will be included to aid in self-assessment for the content areas of the examination.
IDSA will distribute score reports to Fellowship Training Program Directors to distribute to and review with fellows.
