Virtual academies

The virtual academies of adult and paediatric respiratory medicine provide a comprehensive overview of each of the major fields of respiratory medicine based on the HERMES syllabus.

Who are the virtual academies for?

The virtual academies are for all adult and paediatric respiratory professionals wishing to update their knowledge, particularly those preparing for the European examinations in adult and paediatric respiratory medicine.

How are the courses structured?

The programmes are designed to challenge participants and provide a learning framework, and consist of comprehensive lectures, interactive case-based sessions, workshops and Q&A discussion sessions.

What will I learn?

Following the course, participants will gain detailed knowledge of each of the major fields of respiratory medicine, the HERMES syllabus modules, and best practice in how to prepare for the European examinations in adult or paediatric respiratory medicine.

Preparing for the HERMES examinations?

Participants of the virtual academies can benefit from a reduced registration fee of €75 for the HERMES self-assessment courses. This is an excellent opportunity to test what you have learnt at the virtual academy and prepare for your examination.
