TUCSON, Ariz. (PRWEB) March 04, 2020
Radiology portal AuntMinnieEurope.com has launched Board Review, a new online interactive educational section that enables European radiologists to prepare for their board certification exams. At the same time, the site reported that 30,000 unique members were active in the past year, and it also recorded over 1 million page views a month for the first time.
Board Review consists of dozens of questions on important radiology topics that are designed to test an applicant's knowledge of radiology. Questions include relevant medical images, clinical histories, and discussion of findings.
Board Review was developed in cooperation with the European Board of Radiology (EBR) and is designed to help European radiologists prepare for the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR), an international diploma issued by the EBR that certifies a radiologist to have the knowledge and competence in compliance with accepted standards.
Board Review content is specifically based on questions in the EDiR certifying exam, giving radiology trainees the most realistic test preparation experience.
“Revising for exams is incredibly tough these days for busy, young working doctors, so we wanted to do our bit to help them prepare in a practical way,” said Philip Ward, editor in chief of AuntMinnieEurope.com. “We’re very proud to link up with the EBR on this new project.”
To date, over 4,500 candidates from all over the world have taken the EDiR examination since its inception in 2011, with a pass rate of 66%, according to Prof. Laura Oleaga Zufiría, PhD, scientific director of EDiR. Over 900 candidates will be taking the EDiR examination in 2020 in 10 different cities: Vienna, Paris, Warsaw, Barcelona, Örebro, Ankara, Islamabad, Cairo, Moscow, and New Delhi.
"EDiR is the perfect way for radiologists to consolidate the knowledge gained during their training. Especially for young radiologists, preparing for the EDiR not only means taking a step further in their professional careers but also receiving a boost of self-confidence," Oleaga said. "We are very happy that AuntMinnieEurope.com is participating in this process and to help candidates obtain this certificate of excellence."
