The EBNR must ensure that a candidate fulfills all requirements before participating to the final examination. The decision of the EBNR to accept a candidate for the examination is based on a complete online registration, documentation, and records.

Additional notes:

1. The candidate must be a certified radiologist. In other words, he/she must have completed their radiology training according to her/his local national regulations. Proof of completion of specialist training by the national certifying body must be submitted with the application. Certifications must be officially translated into English. Autocertification is not sufficient.

1.1. This point refers to candidates who undertake dedicated training in neuroradiology only; currently this refers to trainees in Portugal. The candidate must provide official confirmation from the national certifying body demonstrating that she/she is a neuroradiologist.

1.2. A candidate who has completed his or her radiology training in a non-European country, is welcome to sit the examination when this training or experience is deemed adequate by the EBNR Committee,

2. All candidates wishing to sit the final examination for the EDiPNR must hold the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR).

3. Individual full membership to the ESNR is a prerequisite to apply. Junior, associate, or institutional membership is not accepted.

4. The candidate must have attended a complete cycle of the European Course in Pediatric Neuroradiology (ECPNR), presently consisting of two modules, and must have passed the written examination administered at the end of each module. There must not be a longer interval than 5 years between the attendance of the ECPNR and the final diploma examination.

5. The candidate must have undergone training in pediatric neuroradiology to become eligible for EDiPNR. In the current absence of formalized training programmes across Europe, a period of observership of at least 6 months in an internationally recognized pediatric neuroradiology centre is acceptable; a certificate, signed by the Chairman of the hosting Department, must be presented together with the application. Alternatively, proof of continuous clinical activity in the field of pediatric neuroradiology, corresponding to at least 50% of the working time of the applicant, is also acceptable. This must be certified in writing by the Head of the Department where the applicant works. All certifications must be in English, or officially translated into English. Autocertification is not sufficient.
