Abstract

Residents believe that the In-Training Examination is useful and frequently initiate educational interventions based on results. Faculty and residents lack the ability to evaluate accurately the knowledge of trainees that they supervise. In particular, both groups may be unable to identify trainees who are deficient in this element of clinical competence.
