Where single is in bold it means that the regulations say it is a single degree country but the specialty is moving towards OMFS.

 
 

OMFS Section of UEMS: In-Training Formative Assessment (OSUITA)

The OMFS Section of UEMS, with support from the European Association of Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgeon (EACMFS), provides an online formative assessment aimed at someone preparing for a 'high-stakes' exam or who just want to test their knowledge.

Formative assessments are "for training" rather than "of training".  The questions are provided by the OMFS Section of UEMS (and participating trainees).

Details of the most recent opportunities to both complete and contribute to the assessments are available from this link  OMFS Section of UEMS In-Training Assessment (OSUITA)

For 3 years Medartis have sponsored this excellent resource for OMFS trainees. They continue their support through EACMFS.

 

European OMFS Training Experience Register - a free download

European OMFS Surgical Experience Register

The OMFS Section has created this Microsoft Access© file to allow trainees and trainers to record their experience in a consistent way. It is free to download and share. Its format is consistent with the OMFS version of eLogbook which is free to use at www.elogbook.org (the eLogbook is the official logbook for OMFS trainees in the UK and has more functionality that our Access file).

Conditions of Use
This file is provided ‘as is’. The OMFS Section does not offer technical support or upgrades. Users are welcome to contact the designer and contract with him to update or modify for their purposes and at their expense. Contact Mr Julian Baker at https://www.theaccessman.co.uk/

Design of a registry/logbook for other surgical specialties
If your specialty is not OMFS but you are interested in having a similar resource for your specialty, please contact Mr Julian Baker at https://www.theaccessman.co.uk/
