EDiR Training Evaluation

The EDiR Training Evaluation is a self-assessment test aimed to review the fundamentals of general radiology. 

This is an online evaluation via remote proctoring software, which can be taken at the hospital or from home (see technical requirements below).

It is the perfect tool for:

Heads of Training wishing to monitor the progress of their residents.

Your residents will be evaluated in different categories and you will receive an anonymised report covering the areas of deficiency.

Your residents will get instant results (pass/fail and average score) and a detailed report on their performance (results classified by subspecialty area) via email.

Eligibility criteria:

Candidates must be in at least the second year of their national radiology training programme.

Upcoming session:

  • September 19, 2024 

Exam setup

  • A dedicated committee has been appointed to work on this self-assessment.
    Its members have previously collaborated in the preparation of the EDiR.
