The European Academy of Paediatrics
The European Academy of Paediatrics exists to promote the health of children and young people in Europe. It aims to improve standards in training, service and research and to represent the professional interests of paediatricians in the EU. It incorporates the section of paediatrics of the European Union of Medical Specialists and therefore has influence in the political arena to advocate for children and young people as well as for the profession.

The individual members of a national paediatric organisation which is a full member of EAP, are by default, without any subscription fee, non-voting individual members of EAP and they can participate in the activities of the Permanent councils and strategic advisory groups.
Affiliated Individual Membership is open to citizens of all countries.
These members shall have a university degree; they may be board-certified paediatricians/specialists in paediatrics (or equivalent) or any other physician or scientist with a special interest in paediatrics. Active affiliated individual members may assign themselves to one of the Permanent Councils but they do not have any voting rights in the General Assembly. They can participate in the strategic advisory groups of EAP.

A Word from our Chair
After careful preparation, and a commitment to “being different” from other paediatric conferences, the EAP Congress and MasterCourse over the past few years, despite an ever-increasing number of conferences in Paediatrics, has attained a very special reputation.
Over one-and-a-half days, based on most recent publications, the conference presents a fantastic workshop, named Mastercourse in Paediatrics. The MasterCourse this time will be focused on “Acute ill child". The scientific chairmen, Prof. Liviana Da Dalt together with the scientific committee of the Mastercourse have prepared an excellent programme with famous faculty members. Mastercourse in Paediatrics take place in relatively small break-out rooms with only limited seating capacity. I, therefore, recommend early registration.
The scientific committee of the congress has set up an interesting programme for both senior and junior doctors, which covers in depth important clinical subjects.
We, in addition, again anticipate a significant scientific contribution from junior and encourage them to submit abstracts. Those accepted, will be presented as posters or oral presentations with lead authors of accepted abstracts (see eligible criteria) automatically eligible for travel grands. Accepted abstracts will be published in the European Journal of Paediatrics and, therefore, citable.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to Padova during one of the most beautiful periods of the year. There is no better time to combine knowledge with pleasure!
