European Board Examination

The European Society of Endocrinology and the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) are pleased to announce the first European Board Examination in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism.

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.

Registration now open

 Please note: The European Board Exam is open to candidates from all countries throughout the world but it is only possible to sit the examination in Pearson VUE centres in countries affiliated to the European Society of Endocrinology or UEMS.

The 2018 European Board Examination will be held on 6 June 2018

ESE is providing a limited number of European Examination Grants to cover 50% of the cost of taking the exam (Please Note: The ESE Examination Grant Application Deadline Has Now Passed).

Standardising Education

In response for calls to standardise education across Europe from the ESE Council of Affiliated Societies (ECAS) and its 50 ESE 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.
