The Viva Course (VIVAC) is intended as one of the tools suitable for the preparation of the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Part II examination by making the candidate familiar with the examination system and technique.    

The programme includes lectures as well as a mock EDAIC Part II exam workshop with experienced EDAIC Part II examiners. Feedback will be given on every candidate’s performance, and every candidate will have the opportunity to observe other candidates and several examiners from different European countries. To ensure the confidentiality of everyone’s performance and a constructive working environment, participants must sign a non-disclosure agreement when registering. 

The next Viva Course will be held online on Saturday 4 February 2023, in English language only (including the mock exam workshop). 

All correspondence, including your registration confirmation, will be sent by electronic mail. Each candidate must provide a valid and personal e-mail address.
