Study Design
Each year, residents in accredited pediatric training programs take the ITE as a self-assessment instrument. The ITE is similar to the American Board of Pediatrics General Pediatrics Certifying Examination. First-time takers of the certifying examination over a 5-year period who took at least...

ABSTRACT:

This report, which is part of a series discussing workforce trends for general pediatrics and related subspecialty areas, highlights the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) workforce data for adolescent medicine. Readers are encouraged to read the initial report1 in the series, because it provides information about general pediatrics and summary information about other ABP subspecialties. The adolescent medicine certificate was developed in collaboration with the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
