3. ETAP

 

The European Training Assessment Programme (ETAP) was established in 2001 as a joint initiative between the EAR (European Association of Radiology) and the UEMS/Radiology Section. It is now a partnership project between the Section and the European Board of Radiology (EBR).


It aims to:


• improve and harmonise the standards of radiology training in Europe.
• provide institutions that offer postgraduate radiology education with objective assessment
of their training programmes by external assessors nominated by the ESR.
• develop assessment systems and guidelines for use by postgraduate education authorities at a national level.

 

The new ETAP 2017 will be officially presented at the ESR Annual Leadership Meeting in Barcelona on November 18, 2017.

 

The ETAP Working Group responsible for the new ETAP concept is composed by:

 

Chair: D. Negru (Romania)

 

Assessors/ Co-assessors (on a rotating basis):

- EBR: L. Oleaga (Spain), V. Valek (Czech Republic), I. Tyurin (Russia)

- UEMS: M. Adriaensen (Netherlands), H. Aronen (Finland), J.P. Joris (Belgium)

 

Trainees organisations/advisory role:

- A. Svare (Latvia) - Radiology Trainees Forum

- A. Montvila (Lithuania) - European Junior Doctors

 

Collaborators/ Verification of information and documentation provided: Society Delegate to the ESR Education Cte. (from the country of the institution to be assessed) and UEMS National Delegate (from the country of the institution to be assessed).

 

 

4. EACCME


The European Union of Medical Specialists established the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), in January 2000, with the aim of encouraging high standards in development, delivery and harmonization of continuing medical education (CME). This was to be achieved through the international accreditation of CME events, and the establishment of a system for the international acceptance of CME points.

Agreements in place with the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for mutual recognition of credits enhance the international status of EACCME.

 

EACCME sets itself as the central link between the National Accreditation Authorities (NAAs), the UEMS Specialist Sections and Boards (S&Bs), the European Specialty Accreditation Boards (ESABs) and the Providers of CME activities.

Key aspects of EACCME 2.0 - presented during 3rd UEMS CME Conference (Amsterdam, 12th November 2016):

 

Application-review-accreditation: faster / more efficient
Brand new IT platform
Accreditation portfolio: new forms of CME/CPD activities
Implementation of "Trusted Provider" status
Accreditation / recognition activities
More emphasis on quality control

 

Please find in the attachments below the new EACCME 2.0 Criteria and EACCME 2.0 Recognition of CPD/CME activities (applicable as of January 2017).

The recognition of CPD/CME activities includes:

 

- Reviewing scientific and educational material

- Publishing scientific and educational material

- Learning by teaching

- Taking part in a UEMS exam as an examiner

5. EBIR - European Board of Interventional Radiology

 

Activated in 2010, the European Board of Interventional Radiology has obtained UEMS-CESMA recognition in March 2017. Supplemental to any other national qualifications, the EBIR also aims to facilitate the free movement of Interventional Radiologists across and beyond Europe.

The EBIR is under the supervision of CIRSE (the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe), the ESR (European Society of Radiology) and the UEMS Division of Interventional Radiology.

The 2nd edition of the Curriculum and Syllabus (attached) will serve as the basis for the EBIR Examination from March 2018.

 

 

6. EUROPEAN TRAINING REQUIREMENTS (ETR)

 

At the UEMS Council meeting in Granada, it was agreed that it would be important for Specialists Sections and Boards to possess certain guidelines regarding contents and formats of the UEMS European Training Requirements (ETRs) with the aim to promote the free movement of medical specialists while ensuring the highest possible level of medical training.

Most EU member states have their own training requirements based on their national needs and experience and in 54 specialties completion of the national programme allows medical specialists to have their specialist qualifications automatically recognized  in other EU Countries. At present (last update: December 2015) only 19 automatically recognized specialties do exist in all EU countries.

These guidelines aim to provide overall direction for the development of ETRs and they don't aim to be restrictive. Sections and Boards have been encouraged to use the principles of the guidelines and then tailor the development and writing of the ETRs in a way that matches the character and experience of their own Specialty.

 

 

7. ESR - European Society of Radiology

 

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) was founded in February 2005 by merging the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) and the European Association of Radiology (EAR), thus establishing a single house of radiology in Europe. It is an apolitical, non-profit organisation, dedicated to promoting and coordinating the scientific, philanthropic, intellectual and professional activities of Radiology in all European countries.

 

The Society's mission at all times is to serve the health care needs of the general public through the support of science, teaching and research and the quality of service in the field of Radiology. On August 17, 2017, ESR reached the record of 70.000 members and is now by far the biggest radiological society in the world.

ESR EDUCATION ON DEMAND

 

ESR Education on Demand, the virtual library for educational contents in radiology has been renewed! Explore the new website here: https://cslide.ctimeetingtech.com/library/esr/home

 

 

ESOR - now available in English and Spanish!


ESOR - European School of Radiology - has been created to fulfill the mission of the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in the field of education. One of its main goals is to assist in harmonising radiological education in Europe and to raise standards in the field of scientific radiology, extending and coordinating teaching resources and helping young radiologists to achieve the knowledge and skills to fulfil tomorrow's requirements.

 

In 2017, ESOR is continuing to organise foundation courses to prepare/assist those entering examinations for the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR). These courses may also be attended by board-certified radiologists, wishing to update their knowledge in a specific area.
