European Board Examination in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

UPDATE 27 March 2020: EBEEDM Examination cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation

As a consequence of the ongoing global COVID-19 situation, the extremely difficult but necessary decision to cancel the EBEEDM examination due to take place on 10 June 2020 has been taken.

MRCP (UK) Central Office, who administer the EBEEDEM exam, has contacted all candidates with information and will transfer candidates who have applied into the next available examination diet. However, if you would prefer to receive a refund and then reapply please contact them at info@ebeedm.eu. Candidates who had seat bookings confirmed will also receive an automatic email from Pearson Vue confirming the cancellation of their space.

They are working to set a new examination date and will publish details of this as soon as possible. 

If you have any queries regarding your application, please contact info@ebeedm.eu so that they can assist you further.

Registration for the 2020 examination is now closed. 

Registrations were accepted between 19 February 2020 and 18 March 2020

As growing internationalism provides opportunities for clinicians to work abroad, the importance of universally recognisable standards that differentiate between candidates is increasing. This examination will provide endocrinologists throughout Europe with a resource allowing them to stand out and gain recognition for their abilities.

Building on the success of the already well-established Specialty Certificate Examination in Endocrinology and Diabetes in the UK, ESE and UEMS are providing European clinical endocrinologists with the opportunity to assess their competence and receive certification endorsed by both organisations.

The examination will be computer-based, with multiple choice questions presenting clinical scenarios which assess candidates' medical knowledge as well as competency in diagnosis, investigation, management and prognosis. The examination will be taken at independently operated assessment centres across Europe and will cost €750.

The next examination will take place on 10 June 2020.

Standardising Education

In response for calls to standardise education across Europe from the ESE Council of Affiliated Societies (ECAS) and its Affiliated Society members, ESE and UEMS have developed this examination for candidates to gain internationally standardised recognition of their clinical expertise. The examination will be high quality, clinically relevant and accessible across Europe, allowing candidates to take part without the need for unnecessary travel costs.
