What is the European Exam in Core Cardiology (EECC)?

The European Exam in Core Cardiology (EECC) is designed to assess your knowledge of cardiovascular medicine and is a UK requirement for completion of training. The EECC is a collaborative effort of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the Union of European Medical Specialists Cardiology Section (UEMS-CS), the participating National and Affiliated Cardiac Societies, and is supported by independent academic oversight.

Previously known as the KBA Cardiology and the ESC General Cardiology Exam / European Examination in General Cardiology (EEGC), the exam was renamed in June 2021 to the European Examination in Core Cardiology (EECC).

The purpose of the exam is to encourage trainees to acquire a wide range of knowledge and complement workplace-based assessments as part of their cardiology training programme.

The EECC helps in promoting best practices by testing evidence-based knowledge from current guidelines and published research aligned with the ESC Core Curriculum for the Cardiologist, published in 2020. This is aimed at facilitating progressive improvement and harmonisation of cardiology training and clinical practice.
