This syllabus describes the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for attaining the title "European Paediatric Rheumatologist" as defined by the paediatric section of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). It is expected that European paediatric rheumatologists will practice their skills and apply their expertise within the framework of a specialised tertiary care unit, division, department, hospital, or outpatients department. Furthermore, such specialists will have commitment to train general paediatricians, paediatricians with an interest in paediatric rheumatology, rheumatologists and specialist paediatric rheumatologists.
This syllabus intends to:
- Harmonise training programmes in Paediatric Rheumatology between different European countries.
- Establish clearly defined standards of knowledge and skill required to practice Paediatric Rheumatology at the tertiary care level.
- Foster the development of a European network of competent tertiary care centres for Paediatric Rheumatology.
- Improve the level of care for children within Paediatric Rheumatology.
