Training objectives for UEMS specialists pertaining to the care of adolescents and young adults
In 2022, a set of training objectives for UEMS (European Union of Medical Specialists) specialists was developed in the field of adolescent health & care by members of the UEMS Multidisciplinary Joint Committee in Adolescent Medicine and Health (Chair, Prof. P.-A. Michaud, Lausanne, Switzerland), on an initiative launched by the European Academy of Pediatrics.
This document lists a set of practical, clinically oriented, holistic objectives that should allow all European specialists and primary care providers (paediatricians and family doctors) to respond better to the special health care needs of adolescents and young adults (AYAs).
