The interuniversity progress test medicine (iVTG in Dutch) was developed to test the development of knowledge as students progress through the curriculum.

The iVTG is administered simultaneously to all the students of the five participating medical schools:
The iVTG organisation has the following vision: to test the knowledge of medical students in the Netherlands as adequately as possible by a cooperative and curriculum independent longitudinal testing system. The organisation’s mission is to be a professional and trustworthy organisation with responsibility concerning the cooperation and production of high-quality testing on national and European level, based on a cooperation of all participating universities.
