The project aims to develop a European Qualification in Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) that will improve the relevance and quality of medical training in Europe, enable doctors to easily integrate into the healthcare systems of other member states and will ultimately improve the care of European patients and the mobility and effectiveness of doctors throughout Europe.

The project will develop an EBM curriculum that is integrated into clinical practice.

The project partnership wishes to develop an integrated course that will:

Bullet be relevant to health care professionals across Europe

Bullet enhance and standardise the learning of doctors,

Bullet improve professional clinical guidelines,

Bullet improve mobility of doctors,

Bullet improve the care of patients and

Bullet improve the efficiency of European medical practice.

The project will produce a core curriculum for training in EBM. The curriculum will be translated into each country’s language and will be flexible enough to include country specific modules related to clinical guidelines and legislation relevant to each country. The curriculum will involve a new combination delivery method including both work based (e.g. in the hospital) and home/classroom teaching.

In addition to the development of a European qualification in EBM, the project will identify, collate and disseminate information on partner countries’ training needs, practices, skills and contacts through a network of influential healthcare, academic, social and governmental organisations, facilitating the integration of doctors of all ages and backgrounds into the larger European employment market.
