The EECC is designed to test a wide range of general cardiology knowledge aligned with the ESC core curriculum. There is no single source from which all questions are developed and candidates are encouraged to read widely, including ESC guidelines, the ESC textbook and practice-changing clinical trials.

Information about the construction of the EECC is published in Behind the Scenes of the European Exam in General Cardiology, Heart 2019.

Advice on preparation is included in How to succeed in the EEGC: a guide for trainees and their trainers.

Example questions are available in presentations made at the ESC congress available through ESC365:
