Welcome to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine's In-Training Exam website
The Sleep Medicine In-Training exam will be offered March 1 - March 31, 2019.
The AASM In-Training Exam is a valuable educational tool designed specifically for fellows currently enrolled in an accredited sleep medicine fellowship training program.
The exam is intended to assist fellows in preparing for their sleep medicine board certification exam, by providing an example of the scope and difficulty level of the board exam, and by helping identify candidates' knowledge gaps so they can better focus their board preparation.
Modeled on the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Blueprint for the sleep subspecialty certification examination, the In-Training Exam is a comprehensive overview of sleep medicine topics.
The online format includes several features, including flagging of questions, official timing and comparative data, that make it easy to use.
In addition to fellows, the In-Training Exam is also a valuable resource for program directors.
It provides performance data which can be used to compare the test scores among program fellows, and to evaluate the performance of the program in relation to other accredited sleep medicine fellowship training programs.
The In-Training Exam can also be used as a longitudinal examination of the performance of program fellows, which can assist with the educational design of training programs.
This exam is not intended to be predictive of board exam success and as such provides no "cut scores". Neither is this examination intended to be the primary evaluation or grading tool for Milestone or other program purposes.
Directors of fellowship training programs and faculty are also welcome to sit for the Sleep Medicine In-Training Exam along with fellows.
