The In-Training Assessment (ITA) is a Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) test which uses the same questions as the Part I examination of the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (EDAIC).
The test comprises two MCQ papers, of sixty questions each. Paper A is confined to the basic sciences when Paper B includes clinical anaesthesia, internal medicine, and intensive care questions.
The ITA is held on the same date as the Part I Diploma Examination and can be taken in the same languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Portuguese, Turkish or Romanian. English language is always provided on top of the selected language so that candidates can refer to the original version if they so wish.
Trainees may sit the ITA at any stage in their training, either in selected training departments accredited by the ESAIC Examinations Committee or in the European Diploma Part I Examination Centres. Registered specialists wishing to assess their knowledge can also sit the ITA.
