Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe


The European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR) is a voluntary supplemental examination designed to evaluate interventional radiologists on the clinical and technical knowledge necessary to carry out safe and effective treatments for patients. Although the EBIR certification does not replace any national training or licensing, it does help IRs certify their expertise and demonstrate their ongoing commitment to pursuing a career in this rapidly evolving discipline!

The examination is based on the European Curriculum and Syllabus for Interventional Radiology.
