Welcome to the website of EBOPRAS, which is the working group of the UEMS Section of Plastic Reconstructive
and Aesthetic Surgery.
It receives funding (currently five Euros per full member per year) from the various national plastic surgical associations
which are affiliated to it through their membership of the UEMS Section. The delegates for EBOPRAS are normally the
same as those for the UEMS Section although the rules do permit one of them to be different. The delegate list may be
downloaded from this site. Delegates meet twice a year, normally in May & September.
EBOPRAS has two sub-committees:
The educational committee is responsible for running the European Board examination in plastic surgery held in Europe.
A list of all Fellows (these are Specialist Plastic Surgeons, who have additionally passed the EBOPRAS examination) is
available on this site. It also supports an annual Plastic Surgery Course aimed at senior trainees in Plastic.
It may also endorse other courses.
The accreditation committee is involved with training programmes for Plastic Surgery, and produces recommendations
as to their composition and duration, with the aim of harmonisation within Europe. It carries out visitations of European
training centres to assess their programme and grant recognition where appropriate. It also tries to encourage exchanges
and scholarships between centres. A list of accredited centres is available on the website.
