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 of 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.


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.
