The major task of AEPC is to harmonize training in Paediatric Cardiology in Europe. Therefore, the Association has published several recommendations for training in Paediatric Cardiology in its subspecialties. In addition, AEPC also supports and endorses the development of other recommendations, guidelines & consensus statements.
