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.
Target AudienceThe EUROSPINE 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 EUROSPINE 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.
Learning outcomesThere is a need to provide young surgeons with a reference based, standardised curriculum.
Obtain the EUROSPINE Basic DiplomaAspirants can obtain the EUROSPINE Diploma by completing all 5 Basic Course Modules. The Modules do not need to be taken in order. You can start with Basic Module 3, 4 or 5, whichever is convenient. It is however recommended, whenever possible, to take Basic Module 1 in the first year.
The Basic Course Modules are offered by EUROSPINE during the annual EduWeek. Alternatively, Modules are delivered in France, Germany, Greece, Spain, Portugal and Turkey through the Diploma Equivalence Programme. Candidates may complete one or more Modules with a National Spine Society and apply for equivalence for the EUROSPINE Diploma thereafter!
