The American College of Physicians, informed by other national stakeholders, administers the Internal Medicine In-Training Examination annually, late August to early September, to all Internal Medicine trainees in ACGME accredited programs. The test, a comprehensive examination on all aspects of Internal Medicine and its subspecialties, is scored nationally and ranked nationally.
Each program receives three levels of feedback:
Program percentile rank as a whole compared with all ACGME accredited IM programs across the country.
PGY years grouped by year in training (PGY-1, PGY-2 and PGY-3) compared nationally at each PGY year level and represented as percentile rank.
Each individual resident ranked by percentile within their training year peer group nationally.
This graphic shows for example our PGY-2 class as a whole ranked at the 95th percentile nationally against all other PGY-2 groups, which means that only 5% of PGY-2 classes across the country outperform the PGY-2 class at Kettering Health Main Campus. Resident performance on the In-Training examination is predictive of Board passage.
Board Passage Rate:
The American Board of Internal Medicine certifying examination is given at the end of the three years of training. The American Board of Internal Medicine calculates a 3-year rolling average pass rate for each program. Compliance is 80% 3-year rolling average. The national mean is 88% 3-year rolling average; however, our program is at 93% 3-year rolling average.
