Internal Medicine In-Training Examination 

Developed by the American College of Physicians (ACP) and AAIM, the Internal Medicine In-Training Examination (IM-ITE) is a well-validated and reliable self-assessment instrument. The examination was first offered in 1988 and is now administered annually to more than 92% of internal medicine residents in the United States, Canada, Lebanon, Japan, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Ireland, Barbados, Jamaica, Iceland, and Qatar. Residents at all levels of training in categorical, primary care, and medicine-pediatrics programs participate in IM-ITE.
