Let´s make a mark

A distinctive measure of quality control

The title “EBU Certified Centre” is a mark of quality control. We perform an objective evaluation of the training programme and identify areas in need of improvement. The application is reserved to training centres in EBU member countries.

For today & tomorrow

Certification comes with several advantages for now and the future

  • The quality control procedure reflects the high standards maintained by a centre.
  • Participating centres aim to implement best practices in healthcare in a consistent and transparent manner.
  • Certified centres attract (inter)national residents interested in high-quality training.


With our network of RTPU Certified Centres we set the standards of high quality training centres throughout Europe.

“European standardisation of training will facilitate cross-border communication between urologists which will in turn benefit our patients.”

Dr. Stein Överby (Sykehuset i Vestfold, Tonsberg)
