Why take the EBIR?

Career development

Sitting the EBIR exam can have a hugely beneficial effect on career development, whether the examination is taken right at the beginning of a tenure or further down the road. Employers can expect not only firm knowledge of the contents of the European Curriculum and Syllabus for Interventional Radiology which serves as the comprehensive guideline for the exam, but also certain skill sets and additional valuable competencies confirmed by trainers or supervisors.

Sitting the EBIR examination motivated me to study the theoretical side of IR and gain a more complete knowledge of the procedures I perform. Obtaining the EBIR diploma has been an asset to my career development and has made me feel more confident in my abilities as an IR.

Recognised within the international medical community

The first EBIR examination was held in 2010. Since then, over 600 interventional radiologists from all over the world have obtained this reputable qualification and this number is steadily growing. In response to an ever-increasing number of applications coming from outside of Europe, one examination per year now takes place in Australasia.

Comprehensive endorsement

The EBIR is based on the European Curriculum and Syllabus for Interventional Radiology, this document has received the endorsement of many national and regional societies including the ESR (European Society of Radiology). CIRSE is also proud to announce that the EBIR examination obtained UEMS-CESMA recognition in March 2017.

This exercise has been an illuminating and formative experience for the UEMS-CESMA appraisal officials, who have been most positively impressed by the thorough preparation and procedures of the EBIR Examination.

Multiple exam sittings

Remote online-proctored EBIR sittings are held twice per year, with one sitting taking place in spring and the other in autumn.

Clinical involvement and patient safety

The EBIR is committed to ensuring high standards of care and patient safety. Therefore, the exam evaluates candidates based on their clinical skills as well as their technical ones. As stated in the Curriculum and Syllabus, it is crucial for IRs to be familiar with assessing and managing patients before, during and after the procedure, identifying and minimising complications and procedural risks as well as ensuring appropriate aftercare and follow-ups.

Successful Candidates

We would like to congratulate those successful candidates from the previous calendar year.
