Welcome Note from the President

“Paediatrics and Child Health need a united, credible and strong voice in Europe”

Prof. Berthold Koletzko

President, EAP

The European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP) is the united voice of European Paediatrics and Child Health, representing 53 national paediatric societies across Europe and 14 European paediatric subspecialty societies, with close collaboration to a further 14 affiliated societies dedicated to Child Health. We act on behalf of and in the interest of our member societies which we also wish to support.

European Training Standards

Through the European Board of Paediatrics (EBP), the European Academy of Paediatrics takes responsibility for developing updated and new European Training Requirements (ETR) in Paediatrics and Paediatric Subspecialities, and for facilitating their adoption by the Union of European Medical Specialists (UEMS). These ETRs are binding standards in the European Union member states and guide the national training standards in many other European Countries.

Our Vision

The European Academy of Paediatrics exists to promote the health of children and young people in Europe.

It aims to improve standards in training, service and research and to represent the professional interests of paediatricians in the EU.

It closely collaborates with the section of paediatrics of the European Union of Medical Specialists and therefore has influence in the political arena to advocate for children and young people as well as for the profession.
