Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce you that the Belgian Society of Surgical Oncology (BSSO) and the SFCO (French society of surgical oncology)  in collaboration with the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO) will organize the surgical oncology EBSQ examination for the first time in French and Dutch.

The EBSQ Examination consists of two parts: Part A (written part) and Part B (oral part). A candidate has to “pass” both parts in order to be qualified for the “FEBS in Surgical Oncology” Diploma.

The written exam (Multiple Choice Questions) is online based. English, Spanish, Dutch and French language exams run simultaneously on-site (cfr centers list on the website) on April 17th 2022.

All candidates answer the same 60 MCQs. Each question has 5 possible answers and only one is correct. There are no negative points for wrong answers. Computers are provided by the Division (there is no need to bring your own laptops). 

The oral examination consists of four 15-min tasks that will be held in Bordeaux during the ESSO congress (19th-21st October 2022) on Saturday 22th 2022. Two tasks are clinical cases discussions and the another two tasks are to evaluate two clinical research papers. Two Clinical Cases: details of a clinical case (patient’s history, tumour histology etc. and sometimes imaging and pictures of the clinical appearance of the patient) are given to the candidates at the time of the examination. Examiners will ask specific questions based on patient’s data as well as general questions related to issues arising from the case

Two Scientific Paper are provided 2 hours before the examination. The candidates are allowed to have the paper with them during the examination. Questions are related to the purpose of the study, design, results etc.

This is a unique opportunity for surgeons who are not confident with the English language to pass the exam in their own language (French or Dutch).

The link  for application for the 2022 UEMS/EBSQ SO exam  is now opened.
