The ITE is a web-based examination consisting of 200 items. The exam is administrated to fellows at an onsite, secure testing location designated by the training program. The ITE is offered over a two-day window to allow programs to test all their fellows in training and provide necessary clinic coverage. FITs can be divided evenly among the two days or all FITs can take the exam on the same day.
The total test session time is 7 hours and 55 minutes to complete the examination. There are 5 sections consisting of 40 items each with a 10-minute break after examinees complete test sections 1, 2 and 4; and a 30-minute break after examinees complete test section 3. There is an optional 15-minute tutorial at the start of the exam and a short satisfaction survey at the end of the examination.
Each program must designate a chief proctor(s) to oversee the administration of the exam. The chief proctor is responsible for the following:
International training programs must contact Connie Herndon to register your program with the ACR, before being able to register your fellows for the exam.
International rheumatology training programs must be approved by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
