Call for examiners for proposed European Specialist Certificate Examination in Infectious Disease

Dear colleagues,

In collaboration with ESCMID, the UEMS Infectious Disease Board is planning a pilot European Specialist Certificate examination in April 2021 and needs a large group of volunteer specialists to contribute questions for inclusion in the exam.

We are keen to involve specialists at all levels of experience after specialist registration, from as many countries as possible, in order to represent the wide variety of practice across Europe. Applications for this round must be received by
18:00 CET on Friday 31 January 2020, but expressions of interest for following years may also be sent.

Contributors will be invited to a training Workshop on writing and editing questions in Paris on the evening of Tuesday 21 April until mid-afternoon Wednesday 22 April 2020, immediately
after the
30th ECCMID.

For those able to stay in Paris after
30th ECCMID, hotel costs for the night of Tuesday 21 April 2020, meals and refreshments will be provided by ESCMID. Potential question contributors are invited to apply even if they cannot attend this Workshop.

Further details can be found in the
Call for Question Writers document.
The application form can be found on the ESCMID website here.

Completed application forms and/or queries should be addressed to

With kind regards,
ESCMID Executive Office.
