EDiPR – European Diploma in Paediatric Radiology

The ESPR launched the European Educational Curriculum & Diploma in Paediatric Radiology (EDiPR) in 2017. The Education and Professional Development committee of the ESPR (hereinafter referred to as “Education committee”) is responsible for the organization of the educational curriculum, examinations and diploma.

  • The EDiPR represents a significant qualification in paediatric radiology.
  • The EDiPR represents a first step towards transnational harmonisation of paediatric radiological standards in Europe.
  • The EDiPR will assist paediatric radiologists in the promotion of their skills and experience when dealing with other colleagues and with the general public.
  • The EDiPR represents a standard of paediatric radiology education across Europe through attendance of eligible courses. Proof of knowledge in paediatric radiology is provided by passing four individual course examinations followed by a final examination covering the whole curriculum. All tests take place in English.
  • The EDiPR confirms proof of subspecialized education in addition to national qualifications and fellowships and by no means can replace these national qualifications or fellowships.
  • The EDiPR is endorsed by the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR) and all courses are accredited by the European Board of Radiology (EBR) and European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

ECPR – European Course in Paediatric Radiology

Each year, ESPR organizes one course, with the aim to cover the ESR training curriculum as much as possible on one specific theme

  • Thorax (including neck and Cardiovascular)
  • Abdomen (including systemic diseases)
  • Musculoskeletal

Emergencies, fetal and interventional level I and II lectures are delivered within these topics

In every two years, an additional Paediatric Neuroradiology (Module I) course is also organized in cooperation with ESNR
