The applications for the 2024 EFRM part 1 exam are available from 1 February (10:00 am CET) until 30 April 2024 (11:59 am CEST, noon). If you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail.

ESHRE's collaboration with the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG) goes back almost 20 years in setting a syllabus for subspecialty training in reproductive medicine. Now, in a move to enhance this collaboration further and validate individual skills and training in reproductive medicine, ESHRE is introducing a subspecialty examination in which successful candidates will become European Fellows in Reproductive Medicine (EFRM) and qualified to use the title EFRM‐ESHRE/EBCOG.

The examination aims to assess the knowledge and skills gained by candidates during their subspecialty training in reproductive medicine and provide formal recognition of them.


While the certification by ESHRE® is based on compliance with certain objective criteria at a given point in time, certification cannot - under any circumstance - be a guarantee for successful future treatments. ESHRE®, its agents or any of its personnel shall not be liable, in any way, for (in)direct or consequential damages that might occur following the certification (such as - but not limited to - damage to third parties).

The ESHRE/EBCOG EFRM examination consists of two parts:

  • Part 1 is a knowledge based assessment process
  • Part 2 is an objective clinical examination

Candidates can only sit the Part 2 examination after they have passed Part 1.
