European Board of Hand Surgery Diploma Examination 2019

Mr Muir is Co-chairman of the board of examiners for the above Diploma. Mr Martin Richter from Bonn is the Chairman.

The latest exam was held in the Sofitel Hotel in Berlin on Sunday 16 and Monday 17 June.

This year we trialed a new system of three (rather than two) orals and a practical station for everyone.

Congratulations to all those who passed, especially those who were not successful at a previous diet and who have come back to pass second time round. Often these candidates get high marks.
