Linking Paediatric Care
to Paediatric Training
The 7 belgian university centers have well developed, high quality and good-working clinical training plus annexed academic MaNaMa programs (including the preceding preparatory and selection process in the 3d master year), within the context of their university’s policies and curricular continuum, and with input and contributions of their large group of collaborating regional paediatricians/stagemeesters. These programs are aligned to the existing recognition criteria and specialization end-terms.
This initiative of the BAoP wants to maintain and expand (when indicated and to the extent possible) already existing joint initiatives and consider which parts of the training could be harmonized at a national level.
The Task Force is aiming to redefine the general goals as well as the skills and competencies that are part of the paediatric training, based on previous statements of the European Union and European Academy of Paediatrics as well as the current practice in Belgium.
In addition, this taskforce will also:
- Work on an update, optimalisation and uniformisation of the legal paediatric recognition criteria and making them ‘future-proof’ (KB15sept1979)
- Follow-up on the dossier of subquota
