Information for exam applicants

The applications for the exam in 2019 will be available online from 16 October until 15 December 2018 (or until maximum capacity is reached). In January and February all submitted applications will be reviewed by the Embryology Certification Steering Committee. By end of February all applicants will be informed whether or not their application has been accepted to sit for the exam. The next exam will be held in Vienna, Austria on Saturday 22/06/2019 (15:00-17:15)

Before end of May all accepted participants will receive a confirmation letter with their seat number. Participants need to bring this confirmation letter to the Exam badge pick up desk on the day of the exam. The desk will open at 10h00 but will transform into a cash desk at 13h00. It is therefore recommended to pick up the exam badge between 10h00 and 13h00 in order to avoid long queues. Participants without an exam badge will not be admitted to the exam room.


Applicants will be expected to have a good knowledge of the following aspects of clinical embryology.
