18.11.2013 | ASCO's Medical Oncology In-Training Exam (ITE)

As a leader within your oncology communities, we wanted to make sure you are aware of ASCO's Medical Oncology In-Training Exam (ITE) so that you can share this information with medical oncology trainees and Training Program Directors in your country or region.  Last year, medical oncology training programs in India, Ireland, Spain, Jordan, Qatar, Philippines, Japan and Saudi Arabia were among those that participated in the ASCO ITE.  Thanks to IAC members Drs. Tabernero and Jazieh for making exams possible in Spain and Saudi Arabia.

The ITE is not a certifying exam.  Instead, participating in the ITE will allow training programs to evaluate progress among the trainees within the training program and compare their results with outcomes from training programs across the US and internationally as reported in the score reports.

For program directors, the MedOnc ITE will:
·         Measure the level of trainee knowledge in medical oncology using international standards.
·         Help establish consistency in educational standards across training programs.
·         Serve as a benchmark and a tool to improve training.
·         Identify areas of strength and weakness in their program.

The exam is web-based and is accessible to programs in any country that have reliable Internet access.  There are fees associated with participating in the ITE.  For more information about the exam and registration, please visit

Please alert program directors or coordinators about this opportunity.  The exam is scheduled for Tuesday, February 25 and Wednesday, February 26, 2014.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact ASCO Staff at

We hope you will pass along this information to others who would be interested..
