EUROSPINE Diploma Course


This course is composed of 6 modules providing young surgeons with a reference based, standardised curriculum in degenerative challenges, spinal deformities, trauma, tumours & inflammatory disease which will support them in their clinical practice. Through lectures and face to face sessions participants will have learning outcomes based on science that can be used in critical decision making.

The EUROSPINE Basic Diploma modules are completed as part of the annual EduWeek. Find details of the next course below.

Course Format and Design

This is a blended learning course (online lectures and live educational event) composed of 6 modules, interactive sessions - case based discussions, and skills workshop (for module 2 only).

The modules include pre-learning and assessments. The number of hours of personal study vary per module.

Not all 6 modules can be taken at once. A maximum of 5 modules can be attended during the EduWeek as modules overlap. There is no particular order in which to take the modules. It is however recommended, whenever possible, to take the EUROSPINE Diploma Module 1 in the first year.

Module 6 (Literature course) is only mandatory in order to obtain the EUROSPINE Diploma for participants who have started taking their diploma courses as of 2020. Participants who have started taking their modules before 2020 do not need to complete this module to obtain their diploma.

E-Learning Component (Asynchronous)

Accessibility of e-learning modules: April 2023.

Participants can take the e-learning component at their own pace, but are advised to complete their e-learning modules prior to the live component.

Live Component (Synchronous)

Date (live session): 26 -28 JUNE 2023

CME Accreditation and Compliance

Accreditation by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) is pending.

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Participation in the whole module is mandatory (online and live components) as well as the completion of the course evaluation and assessments in order to receive the CME certificates:

  • CME credits for the e-learning are awarded after completing the e-learning component.
  • CME credits for the live component are awarded separately upon completion of the live component.
  • Module completion is achieved only after the completion of both the e-learning and live components.
