2013-2014 PEC for Residents Exam Information:

The 2013-2014 Series, PEC for Residents Exams will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week beginning July 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2014. This change should accommodate all programs and the various cytology rotation times.


The Progressive Evaluation of Competency (PEC) for Cytopathology Residents Program offers two online exams over the residents’ year that will track a resident’s baseline and final level of knowledge, and overall competency in cytopathology.  Topics covered will include:  gynecological, non-gynecological, FNA, ancillary, and laboratory operations.

The Program is available only to Program Directors who are current ASC members and who register all residents in the Program for a fee per resident.  Each exam is available for a specified period of time during which each registered resident must take the exam online. The results will be returned to the Program Director for review with each resident. General and comparative statistics will be generated with field validation of the questions occurring over time.
