Abstract

A focused academic support intervention for residents with marginal ABSITE TT percentiles can produce immediate substantial gains. Gains are variably maintained through remaining residency years. PGY-5 TT percentiles <or=25, seen with three AI residents (3/8, 38%), are associated with a 40% first QE failure rate. Therefore, our 75% QE first-time pass rate for AI residents argues for intervention success.
