Gerth van Wijk, R; Eguiluz-Gracia, I; Gayraud, J; Gutermuth, J; Hamelmann, E; Heffler, E; Popov, T A; Schmid-Grendelmeier, Peter; Tomazic, P V; Tsilochistrou, O; Muelleneisen, N (2018). The roadmap for Allergology in Europe: the subspecialty of Allergology as ‘stop-over’ on the way to a full specialty. An EAACI position statement. Allergy, 73(3):540-548.

Abstract

The vision of EAACI and the UEMS Section and Board (S&B) on allergology is to promote and to establish a full specialty of allergology in all European countries. In many European countries a full specialty does not exist. In those countries organ-based (sub)specialists or paediatricians and internists with an expertise in allergology may deliver allergy care. There are no generally accepted requirements for the training of subspecialists available. To fill the gap between the need and availability of experienced and accredited physicians who can deliver optimal care to the allergic patients the EAACI Specialty Committee proposes the minimal requirements for training and certification of subspecialists in allergology. This paper describes the required theoretical knowledge, skills, competences and training facilities (staff and institution). The subspecialist as described in this paper should ideally show the necessary competence in providing good quality care to patients in an environment lacking those full specialists in allergology or tertiary care paediatric subspecialists in allergy.
