The In-Service Training Examination in Internal Medicine (IM-ITE) has been offered annually to all trainees in U.S. medical residency programs since 1988. Its purpose is to provide residents and program directors with an objective assessment of each resident's performance on a written, multiple-choice examination and the performance of the residency program compared with that of its peers.

This study aims to determine which measurable educational objectives contributed to improving In-training examinations in cardiology and which did not. Furthermore, we hope to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the current knowledge to objectively evaluate and improve our cardiology rotation and education.
