The success of the EBOT Exam is spreading throughout Europe, and even to the rest of the world. Every year, more and more applicants are encouraged to take this prestigious qualification, which is helping ever greater numbers of EBOT fellows to progress in their careers.
The EBOT Exam has evolved over the last few years to make it more open and fair, and this fact has been well received by all candidates.
The increase in applicant numbers is making it more and more difficult to set up an examination centre at a hospital or university, however. It is possible that, in the future, we will restrict the site of the final part II EBOT Exam to a few locations in Europe that can provide facilities for this major orthopaedic exam.
We are currently looking into how to provide parts of the exam in different languages, and I am sure that both the final and the interim exam will offer several choices in the years to come.
We want the EBOT Exam to address not only knowledge, but also skills, and we are looking at how to grade these areas of assessment in a final fellowship examination in the future. This will take us closer to the requirements of many of the European orthopaedic societies within the European Union.
The EBOT Exam is a prestigious qualification that is a valuable addition to your CV.
