The Nephrology SCE (Specialty Certificate Examination) is a standardised assessment developed to evaluate the expertise, abilities, and proficiency of medical professionals in the realm of nephrology, which focuses on the study of kidneys and their functions.
Starting from February 2020, the Nephrology Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE) and the European Certificate in Nephrology joined to create a single test called the European Specialty Examination in Nephrology (ESENeph). This was made possible through cooperation between the UEMS Renal Section and Boards and the European Renal Association (ERA).
The exam is managed together by the European Section and Board of Nephrology (ERA), the UK Kidney Association, and the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK. In the UK, the General Medical Council (GMC) sees this exam as the necessary test of knowledge for Renal Medicine trainees. It is required to get a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) and join the Specialist Register.
The main goal of this combined exam is to improve standards and promote consistency in nephrology education across the European Union.
