Welcome to EBOPRAS
The European board of plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery
Welcome to the website of EBOPRAS, which is the working group of the UEMS Section of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (PRAS).
EBOPRAS is a foundation under Dutch Law and financially completely independent from the UEMS section of PRAS. The income of EBOPRAS consists of the registration fees of the applicants. The money is almost solely used to cover the costs of organizing the EBOPRAS exams. The EBOPRAS exam consists of 2 parts (Part 1: MCQ; Part 2: oral). Each exam is organized twice each year.
The UEMS section of PRAS is a section of UEMS (www.uems.eu). It receives funding (currently seven 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 them to be different. The delegate list is available on this site. Delegates meet twice a year, normally in Spring & Autumn.
The European Board of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (EBOPRAS) is the working
group of the Union of European Medical Specialities, Section of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic
