So far the in-training assessment of knowledge is perhaps underrepresented in postgraduate assessment frameworks in intensive care medicine (ICM). In most contemporary training programs a predominant emphasis is placed on workplace based learning and workplace based assessment. This article provides a concise general background on the nature and use of progress testing, and touches upon potential strengths, and constraints regarding its potential implementation and use in the postgraduate ICM training programs.
