About the HERMES examinations

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.
