European Board Examinations in Urology
The European Board Examinations in Urology consist of 2 parts. Participation is subject to eligibility. The period between the EBU written examination and the EBU oral examination may not exceed 5 years.
EBU Written Examination
The purpose of the EBU Written Examination is to determine whether the candidate demonstrates a minimum level of knowledge as defined by the EBU Examination Committee and required for the safe practice of urology.
It is a multiple choice question (MCQ) examination covering the whole field of urology, including basic science.
From 2013, the EBU Written Examination will be available as a computer-based examination. Candidates can take the examination at Pearson VUE test centres in Europe and beyond. Pearson VUE delivers computer-based examinations through the most comprehensive and secure network of test centres.
Successful candidates receives a Certificate of successful Completion. Participation gives right to 2 CME credits (category 3).
EBU Oral Examination
The objective of the EBU Oral Examination is to test the candidate’s ability to evaluate and manage common cases in every day practice. The candidate will be given 3 clinical cases which represent a wide spectrum of urologic practice.
The candidate who is successful in the Oral Examination receives the Fellow of the European Board (FEBU) Diploma and may use the FEBU title.
The FEBU Diploma is considered a Mark of Excellence, an added qualification and an asset to the individual’s CV and portfolio. The FEBU diploma has no legal value; it does not confer the legal right to practice urology in Europe or elsewhere. The FEBU diploma qualifies for 50 CME credit points (category 3).
