The EBPS together with EUPSA will be running from May 2019 an on line training for part 1 called EPSITE. Information and registration via the EUPSA website.
The candidate should sit part one of the Examination first (three Part 1 per year), and if successful, will be allowed to sit part 2 (one European Examination per year).
We try to offer candidates the opportunity to sit both parts of the Examination at the same time only in non-European venues.
You have five years from the year you passed your part one exam until you sit the part two exam.
If a candidate cancels their examination place four weeks prior to attending, they will forfeit 50% of the examination fee. If a candidate cancels during the four weeks leading up to the examination or does not attend, they will forfeit the full examination fee.
You can sit part two examination a maximum of three times.
All candidates MUST sit and pass the part one exam before proceeding to sit the part two exam.
You will be asked to submit your CV and logbook to our Examination Committee for review.
You must have worked in a recognised paediatric surgical centres for at least five years and have letters of recommendation from your supervisor.
In the European Union most of the countries have their national final examination in Paediatric Surgery.
The European Board of Paediatric Surgery (EBPS) is one of the 42 specialist sections of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the EBPS Examination is recognised as an additional qualification by the European countries.
Outside the European Union only Turkey recognises the EBPS Examination as an alternative to their national examination.
