Registration is currently closed, however if you would still like to register your trainees for the exam, please email the Professional Development team. It is a case-based, multiple choice, one correct answer examination.

The exam begins at AM at the site's local time on each day. It is a teaching tool and testers should approach it as such without studying. The goal is to get a snapshot of the training program, as well as trainee knowledge. To gain a better understanding of the MedOnc ITE, please view this practice exam available for your convenience. It also allows comparison of results against other trainees, as reported in the score reports. Initially over 50 subject matter experts attended a training workshop on writing test items. After the training, over 30 physicians submitted items for consideration. This group reviewed all questions and personally wrote the test items. All test items undergo a rigorous peer review. The current blueprint's domain areas and multiple sub-domains are combined with physician task areas. This ensures a comprehensive review of medical oncology knowledge. Domains include evaluation, diagnosis, management, and prognosis. Please check the ASH website for the exam details and dates.
