Announcement of the 2020 ECAWBM subspecialty Behavioural Medicine EXAMINATION

The 2020 ECAWBM subspecialty Behavioural Medicine Examination will take place from Dec 16th – Dec 18 th in Milan (Italy) .


Due to the COVID-19 pandemia , the BM_Examination Sub Committee had to change plans regarding the 2020 ECAWBM BM examination. Our plan is to go for plan A = Examination in real life on Loaction (Milan University)

In a worst case scenario, i.e. a second wave of COVID should happen over the Summer months, the BM Exam Subcommittee will move to plan B = using a Virtual Examination Platform (Examsoft) . So each candidate will be given the opportunity to sit the exam in 2020.

As the Committee is aware of the potential more-stress candidates might percieve in a virtual scenario, our BM Examintion Subcommittee will do everything possible to make it happen on site in Milan. Good luck to all!
