IDSA Holds First Fellows’ In-Training Exam

Almost 600 fellows participated in the first-ever IDSA Fellows’ In-Training Exam on June 3 and 4.

The large number of participants indicates there is a high level of interest in the exam. The main purpose of the exam is to help ID fellowship programs meet new Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competency requirements.  ACGME requires each ID fellow to undergo a subjective evaluation by attending physicians and a measurement of medical knowledge through completion of the exam. 

The exam also provides identification of ID Fellows at risk for failing the ID American Board of Internal Medicine examination while they are still enrolled in fellowship training, and identifies areas in which fellows within a given program need additional programmatic instruction and self-directed learning.

IDSA has started planning for next year’s exam, which will be on February 9 and 10.
