What is the European Hematology Exam?

The European Hematology Exam aims to certify excellent knowledge according to the criteria and topics of the European Hematology Curriculum. While the right to practice will still be granted by national authorities, the European Hematology Exam will be regarded as an extra quality stamp for hematologists. It is an important step in the harmonization of hematology training/education in Europe, and will support professional mobility.

The exam consists of 100 multiple choice questions (MCQ) in English, covering all 8 sections of the European Hematology Curriculum, and will take 2.5 hours. Here you will find some sample questions.

Who should take part in the exam?

The exam is mainly aimed at hematologists who just finalized their specialty training, and is also open to mid-career and senior hematologists who would like to examine if their knowledge is still up-to-date.
