Here you will find details of European Board of Paediatric Surgery's forthcoming examinations, what is involved, who is involved, as well as successful candidates from previous examinations, sample questions and suggested reading lists.
The European Board of Paediatric Surgery is managed by a committee who is governed by the UEMS Section of Paediatric Surgery.
The UEMS Section of Paediatric Surgery is also a member of CESMA.
While the European Examinations organised under UEMS aegis are not to be considered as formal qualifications, their quality and renown have increased significantly over the past few years. As a result, some countries recognise European Board of Paediatric Surgery examinations as part of their national examination.
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.
Naturally, all examiners and candidates are requested to respect local COVID regulations, as well as provide proof of vaccination, proof of a negative PCR test taken immediately prior to your departure from your own country, to wear masks and respect social distancing. It remains possible that the exams will be postponed, however we are hoping that this will not happen. Places to attend the exams in 2021 will be prioritised to those candidates who had been accepted to sit the exam in 2020 which were postponed. All 2020 candidates have been contacted. Your name will be added to our waiting list and you will be allocated a place at the next available venue.
The EBPS Team are thinking of and standing with our colleagues in Ukraine and surrounding countries as you seek to continue to support the needs of children in this time of crisis. May you know peace, light and hope even in the darkest of times.Stop the Genocide – we support Ukraine
