Education & Training syllabus

The aim of the European Training Syllabus in Paediatric Endocrinology is to provide harmonisation of education and training in paediatric endocrinology using the highest standards among European countries, in collaboration with other paediatric subspecialties participating in European Academy of Paediatrics.

The training syllabus was first prepared in November 1995 and submitted to CESP –Confederation of European Specialities in Paediatrics - at the Annual Meeting in Graz 1996. Subsequent revisions have taken place in 1997, 1998, 2005 and 2013. At the European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP), subsection of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS; formerly CESP), each paediatric subspecialty is represented by a liaison officer within the Tertiary Care Working Group (TCWG). EAP has its own legislation/constitution (Belgian/EU law) representing the central unifying platform for paediatric training in Europe. The current version of the syllabus (2013) based on the recommendations of the EAP and the European Board of Paediatrics (EBP) can be found here:

The syllabus is currently being updated and will be submitted to EAP for ratification later this year. It is expected to be available by 2021.
