8. Assessment of trainees

Most EU countries do not at present have an exit examination in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology.

It is considered premature to come to any final decision as to whether it will be desirable or feasible to establish an examination that would be acceptable to all the member states, though this may turn out to be the most objective way of establishing a uniform standard across Europe.

In the short term it may be desirable for exit examinations to be introduced on a national basis, but in any case the Education and Training Committee of SIOPE/ESPHI will be making recommendations on assessment procedures.
