EBSQ

European Board of Surgery Qualification

Continuing Medical Education makes a difference!

Every year, the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO) organises in co-operation with the European Board of Surgery of the Union of European Medical Specialists (UEMS) Professional Examinations in both surgical oncology and in breast cancer surgery.

The examination aims at certifying the level of up-to-date knowledge, skills, and general competency necessary for the optimal treatment of a cancer patient.

The examination in surgical oncology is conducted under the supervision of an Examination Board chaired by Ms. Lynda Wyld (UK), Head of the Division of Surgical Oncology, Surgical section, UEMS. It consists of a written MCQ and an oral exam composed of 2 case discussions and a review of a scientific paper.

The examination in breast cancer surgery is conducted under the supervision of an Examination Board chaired by Dr. Marjut Leidenius (FI), President of the Division of Breast Surgery, Surgical section, UEMS. It consists of a written MCQ examination, a breast module comprising oral examination according the UEMS guidelines on the standards for the training of specialised health professionals dealing with breast cancer ( Eur J Cancer 2007;43:660-675) and the review of a scientific paper on breast surgery. The examination is based on the core curriculum developed by the Education and Training Committee in 2012.
