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. 

How should you prepare?

In principle, you should be ready for the exam once you finalize your specialty training at a national level. We recommend that you complete the Curriculum Passport, in order to self-assess your current knowledge level. With this self-assessment, you can identify on which sections you should improve your knowledge. In case you have some gaps to fill, the EHA Learning Center can help you.

Quality assurance

To make sure that the questions and answers are of high scientific and educational quality, adhere to the European recommended level, and cover the full spectrum of the Curriculum, a Question Writers Group has been established. For this group, 22 experienced hematologists have been selected and trained by educationalists on how to write good exam questions. A Review Group reassessed all questions, from which a selection has been made, representing all Curriculum sections.
