Congratulations!

Memorandum of understanding training Pediatric Intensivist

The training as intensivist in Belgium is a supplementary training as a subspecialist, following certification in anesthesia, pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery or emergency medicine. 
This results in extra certification. Promotion of a specific and high-quality training program for Pediatric Intensivists is a primary aim of our society. 

Taking into consideration the current criteria for general training in intensive care, and looking forward to the future needs of the job, Be-Pics has put forward a specific proposition how this is best filled out for doctors training to be a pediatric intensivist, following a request by the flemish certification committee for intensive care medicine. Full texts can be found on this website.
