Specialist training in gastroenterology in the European Community : the case for European boards.
Gastroenterological training differs so greatly from country to country in Europe it is impossible to believe that training is equally good in each one.
This in turn, provides a barrier to the free migration of doctors with the European Community.
These differences also create confusion for migrating patients, and call into question the validity of the European Commission directives, which pronounce all qualifications obtained in European Community countries to be equally acceptable within the community.
The European Commission does not have the power to unify medical training, but the medical profession itself acting in concert as a European body could harmonise the differences to ensure acceptable standards of training across the community.
