Regulation on the Surgical Basic Exam
The FMCH Societies sees the promotion of further and higher education in all of surgery as one of its most important tasks, and the ‘common trunk’ is a central concern. The Union had set up an examination of general basic knowledge in surgery and offered it for voluntary self-evaluation since 1992.
Consequently, most of the societies of the FMCH have made basic surgical knowledge and its evaluation into an obligatory component of their further education programmes and examination regulations. Accordingly, this regulation is indebted to the further education rules (WBO) of the FMH/SIWF and the scientific criteria of a professional medical examination.
