The European Board of Paediatric Surgery (EBPS) and European Pediatric Surgical Association (EUPSA) created EPSITE to support candidates who wish to prepare themselves to sit the European Board of Paediatric Surgery Examination.
We receive many requests for sample EBPS Part One Questions, and although we include some sample questions on our website, we have been unable to supply full papers.
However, early in 2019, The European Board of Paediatric Surgery (EBPS) and European Pediatric Surgical Association (EUPSA) created EPSITE to support candidates who wish to study and prepare for the Part One Examination.
EPSITE is available to all paediatric surgical trainees and established paediatric surgeons in Europe who would like to assess their level of knowledge; we hope that this will motivate them to sit the EBPS Examination if they have not already done so.
EPSITE will be available on an annual basis approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the EUPSA Congress and can be taken only once per year. Access is via an online link that will be sent to registered participants and activated on the day of the examination.
Similar to the EBPS Part 1 exam, EPSITE consists of 100 multiple choice questions covering a large spectrum of topics, including;
To provide a general understanding of the biology and pathology of childhood tumours....
To understand the clinical pathways of the various solid tumours of childhood, their clinical presentation, imaging, tumour markers which help monitor the disease process, the most up to date protocol in treatment both medical and surgical..
To deliver workshops on operative techniques..
To discuss procedures and how to avoid and deal with complications..
To discuss the value of clinical trials and the basis of statistics..
To deliver the course in an interactive fashion...
