ENETS/UEMS NEN Specialist Curriculum

ENETS has been working closely with the UEMS to establish the European Training Requirements (ETR) for the MJC/RUD NEN (for trainees, trainers, and training centers).

The ETR was approved by the UEMS Council in July 2020. Subsequently, the UEMS also approved to set up a multidisciplinary joint committee (MJC) for neuroendocrine neoplasia medicine. The aims of this committee is to:

  • Achieve competency in NEN medicine
  • Setting educational standards for training institutions and the maintenance of such standards
  • Identifying minimal requirements for training and publish a European Curriculum
  • Defining rules for accreditation of educational activities
  • Offering a systematic assessment for the recognition of quality, both for the individual and training institutions.

Structure of the UEMS

The UEMS (European Union of Medical Specialities) represents more than 50 medical disciplines through various bodies and structures. The most important ones are the 43 specialist sections, which represent independently recognised specialties. The UEMS created a European Board as a subgroup, in conjunction with the relevant European societies, with a view to defining European standards of medical education and training. The UEMS also contribute to the work of Multidisciplinary Joint Committees (MJC) which address fields of a multidisciplinary nature. Currently, 43 specialist  sections, 15 (+6) MJCs, and over 20 divisions are active.
