European Pediatric Surgery In-Training Examination (EPSITE)

European Pediatric Surgery In-Training Examination (EPSITE) February, 5th- 11th, 2024

In North America, all trainees are required to take a yearly “in-service“ examination. It guides trainees’ education by giving them the opportunity to identify weaknesses and test their knowledge. Until now, there has been no such test in Europe.

The European Board of Paediatric Surgery (EBPS) and European Pediatric Surgical Association (EUPSA) created EPSITE to support candidates who wish to prepare themselves to sit the European Board of Paediatric Surgery Examination. EPSITE is available to all paediatric surgical trainees and established paediatric surgeons in Europe who would like to assess their level of knowledge; this should motivate them to take the EBPS Examination.

Similar to the EBPS Part 1 exam, EPSITE consists of 120 multiple choice questions covering a large spectrum of topics, including anatomy, physiology, embryology, pathology, microbiology, genetics and immunology, clinical history and examination, operative technique, clinical data interpretation, radiological investigations, general pediatric surgery, pediatric oncology, neonatal surgery, genitourinary surgery, pediatric trauma and burn care, as well as pediatric critical care.

The next EPSITE will be delivered on February, 5th, 2024

Access is via an online link that  will be sent to registered participants and activated on February 5th.

The exam can then be taken any time between February 5th and 11th, 2024
