European Diploma in Regional Anaesthesia & Acute Pain Management

The European Diploma in Regional Anaesthesia & Acute Pain Management was created in 2005 with the goal of establishing high standards for regional anaesthesia in Europe. For more information about EDRA please click here.

The EDRA examination takes place yearly at the ESRA Annual meeting. Regional anaesthesia colleagues from outside Europe are able to participate in EDRA Part I (the written test) on the occasions that it takes place overseas, for example, in India and Singapore, or during world congresses, such as South Africa 2014. The venues and dates for the EDRA Part I examinations outside Europe will be posted on the ESRA website with at least 3 months’ notice.

Online applications for the EDRA 2018 in Dublin, India and Dubai are now open. Deadline for applications: 2 August 2018*

* The EDRA Board reserves the right to close the applications if the maximum capacity is reached before the closing date.

All EDRA part I exams will be online and candidates will be asked to bring their own computers. Check your computer here. Questions about computer compatibility should be sent to support@ortrac.com
