NCARB by the Numbers:
Time to Complete IDP Continues to Drop

15 July 2013

Time to Complete IDP

In 2009, the reporting requirement for experience (aka the “Six-Month Rule”) came into effect for all interns. As one of the biggest policy changes governing the reporting of experience, it’s only natural to want to see what effect it has had on how fast or slow interns progress through the IDP. We can see here that interns who completed the IDP over the last two years have completed it more quickly from the peak in 2010. The mean years between the start and end of IDP has dropped from 6.18 for 2010 completions to 5.33 for 2012 completions.
