Updated Syllabus: European Training Programme in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology – 2 Year Training Programme
The syllabus is a comprehensive document detailing the SIOPE endorsed training programme that provides the recommended essential training requirements for trainees in paediatric haematology and oncology to be delivered in a 2-year modular training programme with an optional third year possible.
The 2-year programme includes both haematological malignancies and solid tumors. Non-malignant conditions such as coagulation disorders and haemoglobinopathies/anaemias are excluded and will be covered by the European Haematology Association (Scientific group: Paediatric Haematology).
The goal of this syllabus is to ensure a standard training program throughout Europe, allowing the specialists in paediatric haematology and oncology to exercise their skills in a specialised tertiary care unit.
This document is an update, coordinated by Andishe Attarbaschi, SIOP Europe Board Member, of the 2-year Training Programme in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology originally developed in March 2013 by Riccardo Riccardi, former Chairman, SIOP Europe Education and Training Committee, as part of the ENCCA Project, WP15 Education and Training.
