Since their creation in 2008, the HERMES examinations in adult and paediatric respiratory medicine have served as the standard of knowledge-assessment for respiratory specialists at European level and are recognised within the profession worldwide. The multiple-choice examinations are based on European syllabi in respiratory medicine and are accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) and approved by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP).
Taking place online, and hosted by national societies locally, the HERMES examinations in adult and paediatric respiratory medicine are a European standard for knowledge assessment.
With three categories of assessment available, the examinations help respiratory healthcare professions across all levels, from trainee to qualified specialist.
The main HERMES examinations in adult and paediatric respiratory medicine will take place online in September, 2024 (exact dates will be confirmed in January 2024).
The HERMES examinations are now available in Spanish
For the first time as a pilot trial, the HERMES examinations in adult and paediatric respiratory medicine will be available this year in Spanish. Candidates will be able to sit the exact same exam as every other candidate, but question content will be entirely in Spanish.
If English is not your strong point, we recommend that you take this opportunity to register for the Spanish exam version.
