Certificate of Fellowship of the European Board of Nuclear Medicine


The European Board Certificate in Nuclear Medicine proves that the candidate's knowledge and ability in Nuclear Medicine satisfy European standards. The European quality recognition is optional and does not interfere with the national requirements for specialization in Nuclear Medicine.

To be awarded a Certificate of Fellowship of the EBNM it is necessary to fulfil the following prerequisites:

  • having obtained the title of specialist in Nuclear Medicine between 1st May 2010 and 30th April 2013
  • being in the final year of a recognized training course in nuclear medicine in a country which is a member or affiliated to the UEMS.
    To be eligible to apply for the examination the candidate must provide proof that they are a trainee in nuclear medicine and that their specialist training will be completed between 1st May 2010 and 30th April 2013
  • having proof of continuing education following national certification
  • having passed the full Fellowship Examination

Candidates may enrol for and take the written exam (multiple choice questions) after they have completed at least 2 years of the training requirements necessary for their specialist qualification by their national body. According to UEMS regulations, however, they cannot undergo the oral examination, until their final year of training if being trained in a UEMS member of affiliate member country or for non UEMS countries until for a minimum of three years after having received their specialist qualification.

The multiple choice questions and the oral examination have to be taken in English.

Preparation session:
A “Preparation session” for all those who are considering taking the exam is organised with the aim to make candidates feel more confident about the format and contents of the exam. To attend this session it is necessary to register on-line.

Applications should be sent with curriculum vitae including detailed listing of all institutions where training took place with the names of the Head of Departments. A detailed list of the types of procedures performed in Nuclear Medicine according to the Syllabus should be attached. The latest Syllabus update can be found at the UEMS/EBNM web site even if training has not been obtained in all procedures, candidates can be admitted by the Jury if their experience is considered wide enough and includes whole body scanning, emission tomography and therapy.
