About the ACC In-Training Exam

The American College of Cardiology In-Training Exam (ACC-ITE) is developed to assist cardiovascular Fellows in Training (FITs) and their Program Directors. The ACC-ITE 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 In-Training Exam will open in July 2024.

When registration opens in July 2024, you will need to go to your Training Program Portal on to register your Fellows for the In-Training Exam. Please note that you must add your Fellows to your Training Program Portal before you can register them for the In-Training Exam.

The In-Training Exam will be held on October 15 and 16, 2024.
