Division of Breast Surgery, Section of Surgery, European Board of Surgery of the UEMS newsletter

12/01/2022

Due to COVID restrictions, the EBSQ examination in Breast Surgery was held completely online in the year of 2021. It was a great effort from the division of Breast Surgery of the European Board of Surgery of the UEMS (European Union of Medical Specialists) to run such exams in total virtual mode, which in return resulted in a high satisfaction rate from candidates for both its outstanding online system (iCognitus) as well as the excellent work done by devoted examiners. This successful experience boosts our confidence in facing the ongoing uncertainty in 2022. If necessary, the option of holding the exam virtually allows DBS to continue offering quality examination in Breast Surgery during the pandemic. 

The newsletter also features messages from the President of the UEMS Section of Surgery, the President of the European Board of Surgery. It also provides practical information on the EBSQ 2022 exam sessions in Breast Surgery, including exam dates, format and application deadlines. Last but not least, don't forget to check the upcoming courses and webinars in Breast Cancer. Click here to read the DBS newsletter.
