ESOR Courses for EDiR

In 2016 ESOR is re-introducing foundation courses to prepare/assist those entering examinations for the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR). These courses may also be attended by board certified radiologists, wishing to update their knowledge in a specific area. Three cycles of courses at different times a year are organised at the ESR Learning Centre in Vienna, Austria. The format will include two to three one day modules at each cycle, each one dealing with a specific organ/system-oriented theme.

The teaching concept will include 20 minute lectures, immediately followed by 40 minute case-based reviews on six topics. The teaching/learning objectives for each of the topics will be strictly adhered to the European Training Curriculum. A self-assessment test with multiple choice questions for each lecture will round-off the exercise.

20 participants will be targeted per module. Registration will be possible for each single, one-day course, or for more, combined at the same cycle.

The ESOR Courses for EDiR are intended to help prospective candidates to prepare for the European Diploma in Radiology examination. Attendance does not guarantee acceptance to take the examination or success in the examination.

RegistrationFor online registration please go to the relevant course.

There are different registration fees for residents and for board certified radiologists. Please go to the relevant course for the exact registration fees. It is possible to either attend one course only, or to book an entire module. As the number of participants per course is limited to 25, registrations will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
