EDiR REPORT 2020: INTRODUCTION
The European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR) stands for excellence. Throughout its ten years of experience, the diploma has become a European benchmark for general radiology with increasing relevance in the certification process of European radiologists.
A large number of professionals have been involved in the birth and ongoing supervision of this initiative, playing a critical role in the examination process (management, preparation, quality control and execution). It is thanks to their commitment that we are able and proud to present the EDiR as the best medical specialty diploma in Europe and we must acknowledge their efforts.
The initial project has matured and expanded since its inception, and it has been definitively empowered. Now, the EDiR has become an asset of paramount importance to the European Society of Radiology (ESR).
EDiR is certainly an added value to the young radiologists’ CV, since it is a symbol of distinction, which contributes to enhancing their opportunities for professional development in Europe.
Despite all the difficulties we have faced this year, the diploma has managed to maintain its high standards and has continued to grow not only in Europe but throughout the world. Moreover, we have a database containing questions, which have been rigorously classified with a standard methodology that defines their degree of difficulty. This has been made possible thanks to the work and dedication of all EDiR committee members and has allowed the EBR to create homogeneous and unique exams.
