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.
AEPC Logbook for trainees (2021)
The logbook is a tool for the trainee and trainer to keep track of the progress of the trainee. It is the responsibility of the trainee to record all relevant activities. In countries where national guidelines exist, the trainee might maintain a national equivalent to the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology logbook.
