European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and European Board of Nuclear Medicine (EBNM)
The European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) (www.uems.net) has existed for more than 50 years and is the political representative organisation for medical specialists in the European Union and associated countries. UEMS defined the basic principles in the field of training of European medical specialists to obtain a comparably high level of knowledge to allow free movement of specialists between member countries. Specialist Sections for each of the main disciplines practiced in the member states were created to coordinate and harmonise the specialist training and elaborate the criteria for the recognition of medical specialists. With successive enlargements of the European Union, the number of Specialist Sections gradually increased to 34. The UEMS created European "Boards", working groups of the Specialist Sections, to guarantee optimal care by bringing the training of medical specialists to the highest possible level in the specialty concerned.
