My initial goal in taking the EBO exam was to obtain an internationally recognised certification in ophthalmology and gain clinical knowledge and skills beyond our national Board Exams. I was glad to meet peers from all across Europe.

I was very surprised to do so well in the exam, as I am sure every candidate put a lot of effort in preparing for this comprehensive examination.

I would definitely recommend other residents to take the examination. The curriculum of the FEBO exam is a valuable fundament for the ophthalmologist in training.

In terms of future plans, I am currently in my last year of residency and I am looking forward to pursuing an academic career in ophthalmology.
