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. It will take place the day before the 22nd Congress of EHA in Madrid, Spain. No congress registration is needed to participate in the exam. The registration fee for the exam alone is €30.

Who should take part in the exam?

The exam is mainly aimed at hematologists who just finalized their specialty training, and is also open for 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.
