The European Board Examination in Plastic Surgery is organised by the EBOPRAS examination committee and is intended both as a quality mark, and to help in the harmonisation of standards in EU and UEMS member countries. Passing the EBOPRAS Examination does not give a right to work in a member country of the UEMS. Such rights are granted by the National Authority in each country.


Your privacy is important to us. If you apply for the EBOPRAS examination, the data you provide is securely stored for the legal purpose of conduction of the examination and maintaining the EBOPRAS Fellows webpage. Your data will not be shared with other individuals or outside bodies.

Applicants are advised to download and read the EBOPRAS exam rules and Information, which will answer most questions. Applications are accepted only from those who are specialists, or on a recognised training programme, in a full or associate member country of the UEMS.
