The European Board of Oro-Maxillofacial Surgery (EBOMFS) in common with other European Boards of recognised UEMS-Specialties is conducting R.Q. (Recognition and Qualification) Π Assessments. The European Board exists to enhance the standards of training and practice through different means. Among those is the EBOMFS Assessment, which will give the title of ‘Fellow of the EBOMFS’.

Candidates for the R.Q.-Assessment must satisfy one of the three following terms:
Recognised specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery in one of the countries of the E.U. where the specialty is based on a medical and dental degree.
Recognised specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery in one of the countries of the E.U. where the specialty is based on a medical degree.
Recognised specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery in one of the countries of the E.U. where the specialty is based on dental degree, provided this specialist also holds a medical degree.
The Candidate for the R.Q.-Assessment shall have been a recognised specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery for at least 3 years. It shall be demonstrated that he or she has effectively practised oral and maxillofacial surgery during this period. It shall be proved that he or she has shown continuing scientific and/or continuing medical training interest in the specialty.
The assessment will be in three parts:
Curriculum vitae and logbook in English.

The oral interview will last one hour and consists of two parts:
Questions covering the whole scope of the specialty
Case report. Each candidate must be ready to present three well documented personal cases (using slides, photographs, medical imaging, casts, histology, laboratory findings etc.)
Candidates who do not pass the first part will not be permitted to enter the second part. Each part of the assessment will be conducted by a panel of three assessors selected by the Board. The chairman of each jury will be from the same country as the candidate. The decision of the assessors will be final.
The fee for the assessment will be 400 payable with the application for the assessment. A copy of the bank draft or a cheque must be enclosed. The fee cannot be refunded.
