As in the last two years, Spring and Autumn EBOD exams will be held online in 2023 on May 12th and October 13th, respectively. We are therefore very pleased to invite the 2023 candidates to EBO Diploma Preparation Workshops organized by EBO education committee during the SFO (May 6th, 2023) and DOG (September 28th) meetings.

International experts will discuss EBOD-related topics and questions of the previous EBOD exams will be shared with the audience. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to learn important organizational details regarding the format of the exam.

Candidates could attend free of charge to these live events onsite (Paris and/or Berlin), or online. They will receive a personal invitation by email. All other interested colleagues, who are registered for the SFO or DOG, are also welcome to participate in these workshops, which will offer an excellent overview of a large area of ophthalmology in a condensed form.
