EBIR German-language version

2021 marks an exciting year for the European Board of Interventional Radiology. CIRSE is delighted to announce that, in collaboration with DeGIR and ÖGIR, the EBIR will be offered in the German language. The first sitting of the German-language version will take place in Salzburg on January 13, 2021, on the occasion of IROS 2021.

The examination which is based on the European Curriculum for Interventional Radiology, covers the assessment for modules A-D of the German and Austrian national certification pathway. Members of DeGIR and ÖGIR who successfully sit the examination, are eligible to complete their Zertifizierungsstufe 2 for all or select modules.

Integrating the EBIR examination in the national certification pathway in Germany is a further step towards a streamlined IR assessment process. We are proud that this collaborative effort in offering the EBIR in the German language has made it accessible to yet more IRs.
ÖGIR warmly supports the introduction of the EBIR examination in the German language. This development will contribute to IR becoming more visible as a structured career in Austria and will also offer our members the valuable opportunity to sit the examination in their native language.

Registration is open for all CIRSE members who wish to sit the European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR) in the German language.

We would like to advise all candidates who would like to avail of this option that the examination content will be in German language. Due to the international nature and recognition of the examination, application, feedback, appeals and any correspondence with the CIRSE office will be carried out in English language.
