WHAT CAN WE DO TO ATTRACT MORE EUROPEANS • To continue improving the exam • To have esteemed examiners (as we do) from all over Europe • To find ways to propose refunding of the successful candidates by their countries (Austria and Greece for example) • To have close contact with important organizations or scientific societies • To persuade countries that have no end exam after training, to ask their trainees to undergo the exam
Asking the national societies to persuade the committees responsible for doctors’ employment that the EBE diploma is an important qualification. • The first step to achieve this goal is to officially accept the EBE diploma as equal to the national one. • To standardize the level of the exam and to increase its reputation in order to become a esteemed worldwide qualification (this needs time, continuous evaluation, effort and dedication)
