Winner NVSHA award 2013 and 2016!

EM Masterclass

Since the summer of 2016 MNSHA is called EM-Masterclass, to allow for an easier pronunciation in English and mark a small change in governing. We are still an independent, not-for-profit organisation that contributes to lifting EM in Europe, and particularly the Netherlands, to consultant level. EM-masterclass is still supported by NVSHA and accreditation is also provided as you are used to. For you as participant, it is just a change in name and lay out of the study guide.

EM Masterclass is a Dutch initiative to support the development of Emergency medicine in the Netherlands and Europe. Masterclasses encourage Emergency physicians to obtain knowledge, self-confidence and structure to develop consultant level decision making. Inspired, mentored and supported by experienced Emergency physicians from Australia, UK and the Netherlands, participants are educated in both face-to-face days and online mentor contact. Each Masterclass offers an unique study guide, personal mentoring, contact with a study group and a forum and several contact days.

EM Masterclass is a not-for-profit independent organisation, endorsed by the NVSHA (Dutch Society for Emergency Medicine).


We have selected three central locations in the Netherlands for our Masterclass days.


The website, together with the Study Guide, the Masterclass meetings and the mentors, will be your road map and guide on your journey through Acute Medical Emergencies.
