Ongoing evaluation is assured by the practical training supervisor and the results are passed on to the president of the committee by means of a special form. Annual evaluation is carried out on the basis of these forms and includes assessment of effective participation in the training (both university based and organised by scientific firms ).
Exams are organised at the end of the second year of studies at the Ministry of Public Health, by the Collegium Chirurgicum. Further to the application of the Royal Decree of 16 March, 1999, at the end of the first two years of training, the candidate will receive an attestation proving that he has successfully accomplished a specific university training course.
An evaluation of knowledge is organised after each year of studies by the Collegium Chirurgicum Plasticum. At the end of the programme, the candidate is subjected to an oral and written exam by the Collegium Chirurgicum Plasticum. In addition, the candidate will need to have written and published an article in a journal with peer review.
Upon fulfilment of the above-described training requirements, the teaching committee will award the academic title in Plastic,
Reconstruction and Aesthetic Surgery. This title does not replace official recognition by the ministerial validation committee. It attests the successful completion of an academic and scientific study programme in the context of specialised training leading to this validation.
