Application for Board Fellowship 

To apply for certification as Fellow of the European Board of Surgery (F.E.B.S.) in the "transferable competency" General Surgery offered by the "European Board of Surgery" and the "Division of General Surgery" a candidate has to undergo a two-step quality validation process: Eligibility and Examination.

A candidate successfully passing the examination will be qualified as

Eligibility is a prerequisite for the Examination.

In addition Honorary Fellowship Diploma may be awarded to academic and/or senior surgeons in advanced position on invitation, on personal recommendation and on request at the discretion of the Division and Board.
