Annual Exam

In-Training Exam

ASA acts as the secretariat for the ABA (American Board of Anesthesiology) - ASA Joint Council on In-Training Examinations. The Joint Council is responsible for the preparation and administration of the yearly In-Training Examination to more than 5,000 residents in anesthesiology training programs in the United States and Canada. The In-Training Examination provides an evaluation of each resident's knowledge and skill during the training period in anesthesiology, and allows the resident's supervising physician to tailor future training in specific areas in which the resident needs additional assistance before completing the residency and applying for Board certification. ABA uses a subset of questions from the In-Training Examination as an entry examination into its certification processes.
