Discussion
Competency level
Collaboration with ESPO
Duration of training
Examination
Vilnius Group Discussion 1
WHO definition of paediatric = < 18 years of age
Target group of trainees highly motivated
Sub-specialist post-CCT only
In each subspecialty area, the surgeon must be
“emergency-safe”
Vilnius Group Discussion 2
Trainee should attend no less than four relevant courses
Courses must be UEMS accredited or accreditation sought
Ideally, the course should have a competency sign-off
There is no proposal for a super-specialty examination
Vilnius Group Discussion 3
The outcome of the group work has produced a syllabus
We have not defined the number of operations in each
area (Different for different super-specialties)
The super-specialty fellowship should be no longer than
two years
The competency and skills are the responsibility of the
local supervisor
Vilnius Group Discussion 4
Co-operation with ESPO
ESPO Education Committee to review of syllabus
Invite ESPO EC Chairman to next UEMS ORL meeting
Invite ESPO to advise/propose Log Book
Invite ESPO to recommend courses
