The European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR) is the European qualification in Interventional Radiology and aims to standardise training and expertise in Interventional Radiology across Europe.
We anticipate that the EBIR will represent a recognised qualification of high value to Interventional Radiologists in their career development and assisting IR's in the promotion of their skills and experience in IR when dealing with other clinical colleagues and with the general public.
The EBIR also aims to facilitate the free movement of IR's by providing a recognised qualification to confirm proof of training supplemental to any national qualifications.
The EBIR is organised with endorsement and under supervision of CIRSE - Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe, the ESR - European Society of Radiology and the UEMS Interventional Radiology Division.
- The basis for the examination is the European Curriculum and Syllabus for IR
- The examination consists of a written and an oral component
- The certificate is particularly aimed at interventional radiologists
