About

The Exam Committee is a main promoter of bringing relevant knowledge and progress into training and education of allergists in Europe. It prepares, organises and analyses the annual EAACI Knowledge Test. This written MCQ-based test covers all relevant areas of clinical allergy and immunology and related basic immunology aspects according to UEMS European standards of medical training in allergology.

It is increasingly accepted by national organisations as a tool to define theoretical knowledge in these areas. It will help to further increase the standard of Allergology/Clinical Immunology in Europe, and facilitate the exchange of young people trained in Allergology and Clinical Immunology in Europe. Furthermore, EAACI members have the opportunity to use this Knowledge Test as a tool for self-evaluation.

A major task of the Exam Committee is the recruitment and creation of new, fair, relevant and selective questions to feed the question pool and to select a well-balanced mixture for the exam, which is created annually. New questions from EAACI sections, interest groups and working groups as well as from new position papers and guidelines are constantly gathered, analysed and integrated into the exam and suitable literature shall be provided for those preparing for the exam.
