I am Sibel Tiryaki. I completed my pediatric surgery residency training in Ege University, Izmir, Turkey.
I am stil working in the department as a fellow of pediatric urology.
I took the EBPS exam to prove myself and others that I am a qualified pediatric surgeon. I also believe it serves as a good recommendation letter to people who do not know me.
The exam was perfectly designed to question all aspects of pediatric surgery in an appropriate environment. Everyone was so helpful, every detail was planned and there was no room for confusion. Examiners were perfectly professional. They were clear about the questions and they made the exam to be felt like a patient consultation rather than testing us.
They made sure that we felt calm enough to be able to reveal what we know without compromising from the poker face after the answers. I was really surprised when I was announced the best candidate because there were other really good candidates. It was one of the proudest moments of my life I will never forget and I still smile looking at the photos with my face extremely shocked and happy. I would like to thank all of the team for their beautiful work and converting an exam into a good memory.
