The evaluation methods comply with the regulations concerning studies and exams. More detailed explanation of the modalities specific to each learning unit are available on their description sheets under the heading “Learning outcomes evaluation method”.

Semestrial clinical evaluations : these evaluations are established (in writing) by the practical training supervisor of each candidate and focus on different items. The evaluations of all the candidates are reviewed during the two semestrial meetings of the ensemble of the supervisors.

First part
At the end of these three years of training, each candidate will be evaluated during the course of an interview, aimed at testing his general knowledge in internal medecine. Further to the application of the Royal Decree of 16 March, 1999, at the end of the first two years of the training course, the candidate will receive an attestation proving that he has successfully accomplished a specific university training course.

Second part
At the end of the first two years of studies, each candidate will be evaluated during the course of an interview destined to test his general knowledge in Cardiology.
At the end of the third year of training, each candidate will have to defend an original thesis (20-25 pages) on a cardiological subject. This thesis will serve as a basis for the publication required by the Ministerial Decree of 09.03.1979, published on 15.03.1979.

Upon fulfilment of the above-described training requirements, the teaching committee will award the academic title in Cardiology. 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.
