European Board of Neurology

The European Board of Neurology Examination is considered to be a tool for the assessment of neurological training and for boosting its standards. It is an important step towards further harmonisation in European neurology.

Successful candidates from all over the world are conferred the title "Fellow of the European Board of Neurology (FEBN)".

The European Board Examination in Neurology is a joint assignment of both EAN and UEMS SN/EBN via the Joint Education Board (JEB). Since establishing the JEB, cooperation in this regard is conducted via the board and has a designed framework.

The exam is unified based on European Training Requirements in Neurology and EAN Guidelines. It consists of a step 1 written part testing (handling) knowledge, and a step 2 oral part testing other competencies from the CanMEDS roles. Both steps are taken at the same day of the exam at the site of the EAN congress. See also www.uems-neuroboard.org.
