About the ACC-ITE

The American College of Cardiology In-Training Exam (ACC-ITE) has been developed in conjunction with the National Board of Medical Examiners to assist cardiovascular Fellows in Training (FITs) and their program directors.

It is designed to:

  • Provide an objective assessment instrument for the medical knowledge competency of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
  • Give FITs an opportunity for self-assessment and to identify knowledge gaps.
  • Give program directors the opportunity to evaluate their program.
  • Assist in preparing FITs for board certification examinations.

Registration for the 2021 Exam will open July 1, 2021

Please check back with us in July to register your fellows for the 2021 In-Training Exam. Please note that you must have added your fellows to ACC’s online training program portal before you can register them for the In-Training Exam. Instructions for both are available here.

The 2021 exam will be held on October 19 and 20, 2021.
