A brief history

 

Free exchange and circulation of goods, services and people is the core of the European Union. But when it came to medical professions, the European Union faced difficulties mainly due to the fact that medical training is not standardised throughout Europe. An urgent and vital need for harmonisation and standardisation in that field arised.

Consequently, the European Commission has requested the UEMS (Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialisés) to establish recommendations for training and continued medical education within the European Community. Its Monospecialty Section on Cardiology with the support of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) has established a European Board for the Specialty of Cardiology (EBSC) in 1992.

EBSC Objective

The main objective of the EBSC is to guarantee highest standards of cardiology training in Europe. Therefore the board developed European criteria for accreditation as specialist in cardiology. While such recommendations are initially meant for standardisation of cardiology training in Europe, another purpose is to facilitate the free movement of these specialists within the EU.

EBSC Constitution

"The EBSC will achieve its objectives by recommending and by encouraging the health authorities, the national scientific societies and professional organisations of cardiology and the training institutions to put them into practice." For additional information on its constitution, structure and objectives, the EBSC Constitution is available for you to consult.
