The ABNM gives three image-rich, multiple choice examinations. The exams are similar, emphasizing the current and emerging practice of clinical Nuclear Medicine.

  • In-Training Examination (ITE): The In-Training Exam is a paper-based, image-rich, multiple choice exam given at Nuclear Medicine training programs. In addition to the material common to all three exams, it tests basic information necessary to learn the principles of nuclear medicine and to become a lifelong learner. The exam is taken by residents during each year of training.
