The Virtual academy of paediatric respiratory medicine is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of each of the major fields of paediatric respiratory medicine based on the HERMES syllabus. This academy is aimed at all paediatric respiratory professionals wishing to update their knowledge, particularly those preparing for the European examination in paediatric respiratory medicine. The programme is designed to challenge participants and provide a learning framework, and includes interactive case-based sessions and discussions, lectures with key updates in the field, Q&A for participants, and a broad selection of pre-recorded lectures.
This course has been accredited with 17 CME credits by the EBAP (European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology). The number of credits that you will receive will correspond to the time you spend viewing the sessions live.
You can also register for the ERS HERMES self-assessment course in paediatric respiratory medicine taking place on Thursday afternoon, 30 June 2022. This will be an excellent opportunity to test what you have learnt at the virtual academy and prepare for the European examination in paediatric respiratory medicine. The Self-assessment course consists of a one-hour mock examination (30 case-based multiple-choice questions selected from the pool of the HERMES examination in respiratory medicine) followed by a two-hour discussion with an ERS expert.
