ABSTRACT:

Comment On
Influence of changes in supply on the distribution of pediatric subspecialty care.

The article by Mayer and Skinner1 illustrates how far we have come in addressing pediatric medical subspecialty workforce shortages in the United States.

ABSTRACT:

Objective
This study investigates the predictive validity of the In-Training Examination (ITE). Although studies have confirmed the predictive validity of ITEs in other medical specialties, no study has been done for general pediatrics.

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...
