EACMFS and UEMS Pre-Specialization MCQ Assessment for OMFS trainees

Dear Colleagues,

This is a reminder about this new initiative of EACMFS and UEMS to allow trainees to uncover their ‘unknown unknowns’ by completing an on-line MCQ. EACMFS has been supported by an unrestricted grant from Medartis, whom we thank for their help.

After the exam, the candidates will receive their results, including national and international comparisons. Furthermore, we have integrated 10% old questions from previous UEMS European Board of OMFS exams and will publish the solutions to the respective questions. We hope that letting trainees and new specialists see the standard of EBOMS questions will make the prospect of the exam less daunting and encourage colleagues to become EBOMFS Fellows.

We would be most grateful if you would share this information in your country and motivate your colleagues to participate in this formative assessment.

With warm collegial greetings,

Christos Perisanidis
Education & Training Officer

Frank Hölzle
Liaison Officer EACMFS-UEMS

Patrick Magennis
President OMFS Section of UEMS
