The treatment of and care for patients in need of neurointerventional therapy is dependent on a wide variety of specialist knowledge including several different neuroscience fields. As a consequence, EBNI is convinced that almost any specialist physician can train to become a neurointerventionist. EBNI is therefore prepared to accept fellowship in the Board by all skilled and trained neurointerventionists, regardless of underlying specialty.
The Board will provide up to date guidelines for teaching and training including examination and practice with the expressed goal of providing safe and best possible treatment and care for patients in need of interventional procedures in the brain, head or spine.
The Board will arrange programs by which peer review is used to ascertain recognition trough accreditation of competence and skills in the already established individual neurointerventionist. The Board will also provide guidelines making it possible for institutions training future neurointerventionists to be regognized as having an EBNI-accredited training program.
Professor of Paediatric Neuroradiology
I am very proud of having been asked to lead this pioneering work in assembling experts from different specialties to achieve these important goals. I am myself not a neurointerventionist but I will rely on experience from previous involvement in similar tasks within ESNR, WFNRS, WFITN and UEMS.
If you are an already established neurointerventionist and want to have your competence and skill recognized by your colleagues, you can apply for such accreditation trough a peer review process organized by EBNI. Here you find the steering documents and instructions how to apply to become a “Fellow of European Board of Neurointervention”.
