old browser

The EBNR must ensure that a candidate fulfills all requirements before participating in 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. Those who take the examination agree that they are bound by the EBNR rulings regarding credentials and examination scores.

The requirements to be eligible to sit for the final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR) are the following:

• The candidate is or has been a certified radiologist or neuroradiologist for at least two years (see note 1);

• The candidate must be a full member of ESNR (see note 2);

• The candidate must have successfully attended and passed a complete cycle of the European Course in Neuroradiology (ECNR) (see note 3);

• Completion of online registration;

• Payment of examination fee.

Additional notes:

1. The candidate must be a certified radiologist for at least two years. In other words, she/he must have completed their radiology training according to her/his local national regulations at least two years ago. Please note that candidates, regardless of individual specialty, who are NOT certified radiologists CANNOT sit for the final examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR).

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 they are undertaking official training in neuroradiology or is a neuroradiologist. Confirmation of the expected date of completion of neuroradiology training is required for those candidates in their final year of training. This should be in the form of a letter from the local head of training.

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

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

3. The Candidate must have attended a complete cycle of the European Course in Neuroradiology (ECNR), presently consisting of four modules, and must have passed the modular examination administered at the end of each module. Candidates from South American countries may complete all four modules either at ECNR-LATAM or at the European Course in Neuroradiology (ECNR) and pass the modular examinations associated with each of these modules.

There is no specific time frame in which the four ECNR modules must be completed in order to be eligible for the final diploma examination.

4. The candidate must have sufficient ability in the English language to communicate with foreign colleagues, to study international literature, and to master the examination.

The Certificate of the ECNR will be awarded to all doctors, regardless of individual specialty, who pass all four sets of the modules' written examination.

These terms and conditions serve as a binding contract between the European Board of Neuroradiology (EBNR) and the candidate for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology (EDiNR) examinations.
