Satellite Meetings

The EFC General Assembly (GA) 2013 in Prague gave highest priority to the development of quality assessment strategies in colposcopy. The aim is to standardize and harmonize education, training and practice in colposcopy throughout Europe and neighbouring regions. EFC-GA authorized the EFC´s educational committee (EEC) and the satellite meeting delegates to develop a frame programme for basic and advanced colposcopy courses with defined time slots for specific core competencies and minimum requirements for exit assessment (may include a dynamic pool of tasks/questions) and a template for training programmes in colposcopy including minimum / maximum time limits and minimum caseloads.

Similarly the General Assembly authorized the EFC Executive Board and the satellite meeting delegates to define a frame for EFC approval of national QA concepts in practice of colposcopy (“expert colposcopist”).
