The EBIM believes that a European exam in internal medicine, preferably after 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, recruiting Question Writers who fulfill proper qualifications and setting up an Exam Board in close consultation with the member states and the Young Internist Group of EFIM.
Suggestions for study material and courses to prepare for the exam will follow in due course.
The exam will be online.
EBIM aims to launch the first exam in the second half of 2024
