The COVID-19 situation has been having an enormous impact on the whole of society. During the last meeting, the EBPU has taken some measures as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- 2021 FEAPU EXAM: the exam usually takes place during the last weekend of January. In 2021 the exam will be postponed and will probably be held in Leuven (Belgium) on 28th and 29th of May 2021. Application for the exam will be open from 1st November till 31st December 2020. More time is being given to fulfil the requirements during fellowship.
- Re-certification as FEAPU: the year 2020 will not count. Certification will be prolonged by 1 year for all colleagues who are due for re-certification between 2020 and 2024, thus having 6 years instead of 5 to gain their CME credits.
- Re-accreditation of the training programmes: the year 2020 will not count. Accreditation will be prolonged by 1 year for the training programmes listed for re-certification between 2020 and 2024.
We hope that these initiatives, in response to the current Covid-19 situation, will be acceptable to all who are affected by the crisis.
