Competence-Based training and assessment

The UEMS developed the idea of assessing medical specialists’ competence at the European level through the evaluation of their knowledge, skills and professionalism. Thanks to the competence-based European Curricula developed for each Specialist Section, the UEMS advocate for harmonized assessment of medical training.

In this regard, the UEMS established the European Council for Medical Specialist Qualifications (ECAMSQ). The aim of this body is to address this issue through establishing a comprehensive mechanism of appraisal of knowledge, skills and professionalism of post-graduate medical trainees according to the highest standards of medical training in Europe.
