European Curriculum Recommendations for Training in Adult Respiratory Medicine. In: Breathe, vol. 5 pp. 80 - 120. European Respiratory Society, 2008.
Introduction 1.1 The HERMES project The mission of the European Respiratory Society(ERS) is to prevent, cure, or alleviate suffering from respiratory disease and to promote lung health through research, knowledge sharing,medical and public education. With regard to the promotion of medical education, the ERS is committed to achieving the highest possible standards of practice in the specialty and to improving harmonisation of training across the countries of Europe. The HERMES Task Force of the ERS School was established in 2005 to undertake a major project to promote Harmonisation of Education in Respiratory Medicine for European Specialists. The first phase of the project, undertaken during 2005 and 2006, was to develop a European core syllabus in respiratory medicine and this was published in a first report from the HERMES Task Force in 2006 [1]. This second report from the HERMES Task Force presents the results of the second phase of the project, 2006-2008, which adds to the syllabus by producing recommendations for the development of a full European curriculum for training in adult respiratory medicine. It is hoped that these reports will together constitute a significant step forward for the ERS in achieving its mission. The Task Force has found that, as expected,the practice of Respiratory Medicine varies considerably across Europe, as does the state of curriculum development to achieve training in the specialty. The terminology for the specialty also varies considerably. The most common terminologies are respiratory medicine and pneumology. Chest medicine and thoracic medicine are also commonly used. The Task Force accepts that countries will continue to use their preferred terminology. With the increasing mobility of doctors across the continent it has become important to define the core common characteristics of practice in the specialty. In doing so, the Task Force has held to the principle of always trying to improve the standard of practice and therefore the care of patients with respiratory disease. It is recognised that not all countries may be immediately able to achieve the levels of practice set out here, but it is hoped that all countries will see this as their ultimate aim, and find these curriculum recommendations helpful in achieving this.
