The EBIM believes that a European exam in internal medicine, preferably at the conclusion of training or during the final year, would significantly enhance the harmonization of postgraduate education in internal medicine in Europe. EBIM has received support for a European exam from representatives of the member states and the Young Internists Group of EFIM.
EBIM is currently working on a blueprint for the exam, recruitment of Question Writers that fulfill proper qualifications to do so and setting up an Exam Board in close consultation of the member states as well the Young Internist Group of EFIM.
Suggestions for study material and courses to prepare for the exam will follow in due course.
The form (whether online, live, or hybrid) is still to be decided
EBIM aims at launching the first exam in the beginning of 2024
