With the AEPC Certification of basic training in paediatric and congenital cardiology, the AEPC aims to establish a certificate of training to ensure an equally high standard of training in the field throughout Europe which subsequently allows state-of-the-art treatment of patients with congenital heart disease in future. As the subspecialty of Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology is not officially recongnised in all European countries, the AEPC certificate can be considered as an international reference of high quality training in the field.
This certification can be achieved by paediatricians / cardiologists at the end of their training in paediatric cardiology. The Educational Committee has worked out the criteria to reach the AEPC certification in agreement with the AEPC council.
The certification consists of two components which both should be completed in order to be certified:
DOCUMENTATION OF EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE IN THE AEPC LOGBOOK
SUBMISSION OF THE LOGBOOK FOR CERTIFICATION
In general, the training should be in agreement with the AEPC recommendations as published in Cardiology in the Young: “Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology Recommendations for basic training in paediatric and congenital cardiology 2020”.
