Founded in 1958, less than one year after the treaty of Rome, the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) groups together specialist doctors regardless of their field or mode of practice, or their legal status. Its object is the advancement and harmonisation of the quality of specialist medical practice in Europe and the defence, at international level, of the status of the medical specialist and of his/her professional role in society (Table 1).
