Summary of "Comparative Analysis of the American Board of Family Medicine and American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians In-Training Examinations."

Family medicine residency programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the American Osteopathic Association typically require their residents to take the American Board of Family Medicine's In-Training Examination (ITE) and the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians' In-Service Examination (ISE). With implementation of the single accreditation system (SAS), is it necessary to administer both examinations? This pilot study assessed whether the degree of similarity for the construct of family medicine knowledge and clinical decision making as measured by both exams is high enough to be considered equivalent and analyzed resident ability distribution on both exams.
