European Board Examination
The European Core Curriculum for Emergency Medicine concludes with a short reference to possible future developments in Emergency Medicine in Europe. These include an examination or assessment to confirm successful completion of specialty training.
A group of UEMS Sections and Boards recently established a separate Council for European Specialist Medical Assessment, CESMA, to seek to harmonise postgraduate qualifications. Those specialties which already offer a European diploma conduct their assessments in very different ways and one of the most important functions of CESMA is to seek to identify the most appropriate format to assure European accreditation of medical specialty qualifications.
The MJC/European Board of EM is a full member of CESMA and last year it established a Task Force in conjunction with EuSEM to develop a proposal for a European assessment in Emergency Medicine.
This Task Force includes representatives from countries which already hold and which are developing such examinations as well as EuSEM members of the MJC. The chair of the Task Force is Dr Roberta Petrino.
The 2013 Part A exam cycle has now closed.
The 2014 Part B exam will be held in Novara, Italy on 9/10 May 2014.
More details will be posted here shortly.
