About the Examination for the European Diploma in Pain Medicine
- The purpose of the European Pain Federation EFIC Examination for the Diploma in Pain Medicine (EDPM) is to improve the standard of pain assessment and treatment through the provision of a qualification for all medical professionals that tests their broad understanding of all types of pain and their treatment.
- The EDPM is not designed to replace national qualifications, but to establish a harmonised understanding of pain across Europe through a qualification open to all European doctors, as well as doctors from outside of Europe, and to provide a qualification in those countries where a national equivalent does not exist.
- The content of the Examination is based upon the European Pain Federation EFIC Curriculum for the European Diploma in Pain Medicine, and selected accompanying reading materials, primarily the recommended reading list.
- All information about exam structure, logistics and preparation are available on our dedicated EDPM exam page.
