  • Eduardo da Cruz (a1), Evelyn Lechner (a2), Brigitte Stiller (a3), Ricardo Munoz (a4), Maurice Beghetti (a5), Ulrich Fakler (a6) and Nikolaus Haas (a7)...

The following document provides a summary of the guidelines and recommendations for paediatric cardiac intensive care training as a requirement for recognition as a European paediatric cardiologist. It is therefore primarily targeting paediatric cardiology trainees in Europe, including those doctors who might wish to become experts in cardiac intensive care. These recommendations represent a frame for consistency, will evolve, and may be adapted to specific institutional requirements. They will be complemented by a learning module to be provided by our Association in the near future.
