Certificate of Fellowship of the European Board of Nuclear Medicine

Certificate

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.


Candidates
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.
