Paediatric Emergency Medicine in Europe

Paediatric Emergency Medicine is still not recognized as a formal subspecialty in many European Countries. We are constantly working to update and enrich the European Paediatric Emergency Curriculum. This document serves as a guide for paediatricians who wish to work in emergency departments, as well as for general emergency physicians who have to deal with paediatric emergencies and require further training.

The last version of the European PEM Curriculum can be found here.
