By definition, EBSC through its UEMS Cardiology
Section connection, is one of the UEMS
The European Union of Medical Specialists
(UEMS) is an advisory body to the European Commission, and
so is indirectly EBSC as well.
EBSC, through various studies and surveys,
is working in close relationship with associations and working
groups as well as national authorities.
Providing recommendations on training
curricula, training structures and training institutions,
EBSC has also international recognition as a central monitoring
authority in cardiology.
National Cardiology Training
One of EBSCs objectives is to formulate
recommendations to national authorities and societies in order
to harmonise standards in cardiology training at European
level. Accordingly, EBSC is positioned as an advisory body
for national authorities which effectively supervise training
and training centres, and certify specialists.
In its effort to ensure the quality of training,
EBSC regularly surveys national authorities in order to monitor
implementation of recommendations but also in a constant effort
to obtain as accurate a picture as possible on training in
cardiology in Europe.
Results from these surveys are analysed and
provide very valuable information on the national training
and evaluation procedures.
