The European Board of Paediatrics (EBP)
The European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP) is the paediatric section of the ‘Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes’ (UEMS). According to the UEMS statutes, each section shall establish a European Board that ensures the highest level of training, practice and research of European specialists.
Thus, the EBP shall:
- Harmonise quality of training through the European curriculum in general paediatrics and various syllabi in specialised paediatrics.
- Organise under the supervision of UEMS-CESMA (Council for European Specialist Medical Assessment) the appropriate assessments to qualify European specialists in paediatrics including a European Diploma in general paediatrics based upon MCQs and an electronic European Logbook of competences.
- Recommend minimal standards the European training centres of excellence should fill in.
…in order to promote and ease the free circulation of paediatricians throughout Europe.
