In addition to meeting medical education, training and procedural requirements, initial certification in internal medicine requires passing the Internal Medicine Certification Exam.

The examination is administered pass-fail. Overall examination performance is reported on a standardized score scale with a range of 200 to 800. The mean standardized score for first-time takers on the base test form of is 500 with a standard deviation of 100.

The Internal Medicine Certification Exam is a single-day exam lasting approximately 10 hours. The exam is divided into four sessions, each lasting up to two hours and containing a maximum of 60 case-based, multiple-choice questions.
