EJD Policies & Statements

Policy on CME/CPD

Oporto, April 2000

The rapid development of medical science has increased the importance of ensuring the conditions which allow doctors to update their knowledge and professional competence. The PWG has, for a long time, been aware of the importance of Continuing Medical Education and has defended the principle that CME activities should be available to all doctors, including those in postgraduate training.

HIV Infection & Hospital Doctors

OSLO, September 1995

This PWG Policy Statement on HIV infections and Hospital Doctors is a model of clarity and applicability. An added benefit is that it is equally applicable to other blood-borne infections such as hepatitis viruses.

Policy Paper on Post Graduate Training

Vienna, October 1994

The primary purpose of postgraduate training (PGT) is to ensure that specialised doctors competently address the medical needs of the community. The permanent Working Group of European Junior Doctors (PWG) has prepared this policy paper which represents the perspective of the consumers of PGT, the trainee medical specialists, in general practice, public health, and the hospital-based specialties.
