2019 TSDA In-Training Exam

The 2019 TSDA In-Training Exam for CT surgery residents has concluded.

Results will be sent to Program Directors in mid-late May. Results should be distributed and reviewed with thoracic surgery residents/fellows who completed the exam. TSDA does not send score reports to individual residents. Results will include a percent correct and percentile rank based on the total score, additional information concerning major content categories and comparative information for an examinee’s resident year, and percent correct scores for content subcategories to offer more detail about the examinee’s performance within each major content category. Exam results will be withheld from a program until full payment is received by TSDA.
