Now, select the prepared version that represents your specialty. Bear with us here: following this, a few more fields will pop up based on your selection, squeezing into the screen above the "gender" field. Select your institution, and in the again popping up field, select your role.
💡 If you select "supervisor" as your role, your institution administrator will automatically receive a request to confirm you as a supervisor. Your app will be in "waiting mode" until you are confirmed as a supervisor. Get more details

Now, the fun part: data protection (we know our registration is tedious - here's the upside: you only ever have to do this once!). We value your data and want to make sure you know which data you share with whom. Therefore the long section on this.
The first two sliders concern you sharing your data with your institution.
💡 They will only be able to offer you personalized teaching if you do so - and we have customers who already rely on their trainees' EPA profiles when deciding who can do a procedure on their own!
Activating the second two sliders let us include your anonymized data in our research. Nobody can track them back to you.
💡 We strive to better understand competency-based education, and therefore want to be able to share such data either with your institution, or with reputable scientists outside our organization. Thanks for your support!
