The European Spine Course Diploma (ESCD) is made up of 5 Modules. All 5 Modules must be completed in order to obtain the ESCD which is now respected on a European level by many spinal societies and federations whom remain involved and informed on the project developments. EUROSPINE has developed standards and policies in key areas of spinal post graduate training that follow a strict quality control to maintain consistency of the content.
The importance of continuous medical education is self-evident to spine professionals. As spinal treatment strategies progress, the necessity to update one’s knowledge increases. It is expected that the European Community will recognise the need to establish a certification on the basis of this initiative, for this purpose, an official Multidisciplinary Joint Committee has been created at UEMS.
The European Spine Couse Diploma is intended for surgeons in their last year of residency wishing to acquire basic knowledge on the evaluation of spinal disorders, spinal disease process and surgical skills. The European Spine Course Diploma is also relevant to any health care professional involved in the spinal treatment spectrum wanting to get best practices in the specialty of spine.
