ERS HERMES examination in paediatric respiratory medicine

Latest information for the 2018 exam

  • Registrations are now open.


The first ERS HERMES examination in paediatric respiratory medicine took place in Amsterdam in 2011. Since then the exam has become a well-known and recognised assessment within the profession throughout Europe and worldwide. The European Diploma examination in paediatric respiratory medicine is also delivered in Asia in collaboration with the Asian Paediatric Pulmonology Society (APPS) since 2016.

The ERS HERMES exams are based on a European syllabus in paediatric respiratory medicine, published in Breathe, and the examination blueprint. New multiple-choice questions are created each year; each question undergoes a rigorous process of formulation and validation by European representatives, who ensure that current and authentic professional situations are illustrated.

National society cooperation

The ERS HERMES examinations are currently used by various national or regional societies in Europe and Asia as the written part of the national exit examination, a fellowship prerequisite, or to obtain the European Diploma. Find out more
