Fox KF, Popescu BA, Janiszewski S, Nihoyannopoulos P, Fraser AG, Pinto FJ. Report on the European Association of Echocardiography Accreditations in Echocardiography: December 2003-September 2006. Eur J Echocardiogr, 8(1), pp. 74-79, 2007.

Abstract: Abstract Aims: The European Association of Echocardiography (EAE) launched its
Accreditation scheme in echocardiography in December 2003. Currently there are
accreditations in Adult Transthoracic Echocardiography and Transesophageal Echocardiography
and an Accreditation in Echocardiography for Congenital Disease will
be launched in December 2006.
Methods and results: Over the past 3 years 350 applicants have undertaken the
written exams and 157 applicants have completed the process and achieved
accreditation.
This report summarises the accreditation process, the details of the numbers of
applicants and their progress through the Accreditation scheme. This report also
provides data about the performance of the written exam, its reliability and the effectiveness
of the questions and data about the reproducibility of the log book
marking system.
Conclusion: Taken together this report provides evidence that the EAE Accreditation
schemes have been effective in establishing a standard for echocardiographic practice
and an accreditation that is effectively organised, reliable, robust and successful.

Keywords: European Association of Echocardiography, Accreditation scheme, Echocardiography
