7. National training programmes

7.1 EU Countries with Existing Programmes


National training programmes in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology that already exist or are in an advanced stage of development should be considered as compatible when they:

- have a content that is comparable with but not shorter than the European programme.

Each national syllabus should be scrutinised by the joint Education and Training Committee of SIOPE and ESPHI for compatibility. If compatible the trainees successfully completing training within that programme would be eligible for a European title within Paediatric Haematology and Oncology.

7.2 EU Countries without Existing Programmes


National professional bodies should be encouraged to adopt a national training programme in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology and to structure it in close compatibility with the European model. This should be scrutinised by the SIOPE/ESPHI committee. Until implementation of such a national training programme, individuals should have the opportunity to train according to the European programme and to document their progress in a similar fashion. Review of progress would be made by the EBP in conjunction with SIOPE and ESPHI.

7.3 Non-EU European Countries


National professional bodies may wish to adopt a national training programme in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology and to structure it in close compatibility with the European model. This can be scrutinised by the SIOPE/ESPHI committee. Until implementation of such a national training programme, individuals should have the opportunity to train according to the European programme.
