European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (EDAIC)

As a diploma recognised by the EUMS and by several European and non-European countries, the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care examination (EDAIC) sets the European standards. It is a multilingual, end-of-training, two-part examination covering the relevant basic sciences and clinical subjects appropriate for a specialist anaesthesiologist

Every year up to 3,000 candidates register for the EDAIC Part I written exam.

The EDAIC Part II oral examination is the second and last examination needed to receive your European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care.
