Letter from the president 2011
Letter from the President, Oct 2011
The UEMS Division of Neuroradiology has now been in operation
for two years. The first couple of meeting have been occupied by
trying to formulate the mode of operation for the Division and
making sure that the national delegates have proper credentials and
feel comfortable in this new role for neuroradiologists. There are
now 15 accredited national delegates to the Division.
The work during 2010 has very much been dominated by efforts to
produce training Charters in Clinical and Interventional
neuroradiology. The curriculum in clinical neuroradiology is very
much building on the work done within ESNR before creation of the
UEMS Division. The Training Charter in Endovascular Interventional
neuroradiology has been built on a different concept, the concept
of "Particular competence", designed by UEMS to allow creation of
new areas of competence that are of interest to more than one
established specialty within UEMS.
At the meeting of the UEMS Radiology Section in Vienna on
the 5th of March 2011, these two Charters was unanimously approved
and was approved unanimously and with acclamation in the Council of
UEMS in Naples, 8 Oct 2011 . This is of course an issue
that concerns all neuroradiologists in Europe as this Charter will
be adopted by UEMS and then becomes part of the EU Directive of
professional specialisation, among others, applicable for doctors
in Europe. The Charters were unanimously accepted at the meeting of
the Division of Neuroradiology, on the 4th of February 2011.
There are still countries without accredited national
delegate to the Division of Neuroradiology. I think this is
unfortunate, particularly in these times when important decisions
for all European neuroradiologists are being made.
There is still time for your society to nominate a delegate and
for your National Medical Association to accredit the same delegate
to represent your country in the UEMS Division of neuroradiology. I
would urge you to start this process as soon as possible!
Olof Flodmark, Professor
Chairman of UEMS Division of Neuroradiology
