European Mastercourse in Paediatrics book cover

European Mastercourse in Paediatrics

''One of the fundamental aims of the EAP is to improve standards and harmonise the training of paediatricians in the EU. To that effect, the European Academy of Paediatrics and Elsevier have published the European Mastercourse in Paediatrics to provide a comprehensive package for trainee paediatricians undertaking the European Paediatric Common Trunk.

This excellent resource combines a full-colour print book and DVD to provide an invaluable case-based learning package. It is my belief that the European Mastercourse in Paediatrics is an essential tool that gives trainees taking care of children the information they need to give the highest quality and most appropriate care possible.''

Dr Patricia Hamilton

President of the EAP
