To apply for certification as Fellow of the European Board of Surgery (FEBS) in the specialty of Trauma Surgery offered by the European Board of Surgery and the Division of Trauma Surgery, a candidate has to undergo a two-step quality validation process: Eligibility (Part I) and Examination (Part II).
A candidate successfully passing the Eligibility and Examination will be qualified as: Fellow of the European Board of Surgery (FEBS) in Trauma Surgery.
The Fellowship of the UEMS is a significant high-level indication of professional competence and excellence. It basically reflects the ongoing important European standardisation, harmonisation and quality assurance process in medicine.
At present, the fellowship of itself has no automatic legal recognition in the European Union or any other country. Individual recognition of qualifications by the national authorities is supported by the EBSQ committee and the number of countries officially adopting the Board exam is continuously rising. The future perspective of this European diploma is to be seen in unanimous legalization within the ongoing project of the European harmonization process of medical education.
The title does not in itself imply an automatic right to independent practice, nor does it automatically enhance participation in national social security systems of the European Union.
The candidate for the EBSQ title in Trauma Surgery should be a future opinion leader in Trauma surgery.
The EBSQ Examination in Trauma surgery is open to candidates trained in one of the 27 European Union countries, a UEMS country, an associated UEMS country or a country with UEMS observer status.
The exam is also open to candidates trained outside the UEMS area provided that the Eligibility committee considers that the training and qualifications are equivalent.
Application to the EBSQ Examination in Trauma Surgery is composed of the following documents.
