Welcome to the website of the UEMS-CAP section,

The Child and Adolescent section of the Union European Medical Specialists (UEMS-CAP) strongly believes that the quality of training and education in child and adolescent psychiatry is closely related to the quality of provision of care for children and young people with mental health problems in the (near) future.

On this website you will find information about the goals and achievements of the UEMS-CAP, training and continuous education in different countries.

Some of our current projects:

1. Update of The EU Curriculum Framework for CAP training
