Activities and Projects

The Excellence in Pediatrics Institute (EIPI) is a not-for-profit association that provides continuing medical education to a global network of child healthcare professionals. EIPI's purpose is to act as a hub for sharing the latest developments and advice with all stakeholders caring for children and adolescents. By leveraging the collective expertise and research of leading global pediatric healthcare professionals, EIPI aims to facilitate an open exchange of scientific knowledge and clinical best practices. EIPI strives to build a global community of child healthcare professionals that nurtures and supports their continuing education requirements and ever-changing needs.



Improving Child Health Globally 

The Excellence in Pediatrics Conference (EIP) is the Institute's annual flagship event that updates its delegates on the latest scientific developments. More importantly, it helps them improve the standard of care they deliver on the Monday morning after the meeting. The EIP Faculty presents cutting-edge research and its specific use for pediatric practice - providing attendees with unparalleled access to frontline research, but critically with a professional translation into clinical practice. The Excellence in Pediatrics Conference is a truly collaborative event designed for the benefit of frontline child healthcare professionals from across Europe and around the world. The scientific program can be viewed as a series of parallel speciality conferences that cover the latest hot topics and developments across specialities of pediatrics. In addition to the speciality-specific section, an interdisciplinary track covers overarching topics. This way, delegates can learn about signs and treatment per area, not just per discipline. 



Connecting Pediatricians to Improve Child Health Globally

The Excellence in Pediatrics Community is a collaborative global network allowing members to engage in peer-to-peer learning through our online communication platform. The EIP Community enables members to connect and work with their colleagues worldwide. Our members are the EIP Institute's core, deciding priorities and shaping our activities. The Excellence in Pediatrics Community is open for individual healthcare professionals from all over the world to become members and is free to join and participate.

Over the past 7 years, EIP has also developed an extensive online educational content library by recording the annual conference sessions. ​Our Recorded Sessions Library features over 250 sessions allowing you to update your skills and knowledge.



Protecting All Against Vaccine-Preventable Diseases

Vaccines Together is an initiative and online collaboration hub run by EIP, targeting to increase vaccination coverage rates across Europe, and across all stages of life, by facilitating collaboration, best practices exchange, ideas and educational resources sharing among organisations, associations, and institutions involved in promoting vaccinations. In addition to the 5 Working Groups formed, Vaccines Together aims to build vaccine confidence among healthcare professionals directly through targeted campaigns and free-to-view online vaccine training courses. Explore the portal's dedicated sections to learn more about our latest campaigns and free-to-view online training for healthcare professionals.


LifeCourse Vaccinations as the Basis of Health Systems Resilience

The Summit and Working Groups prioritise establishing life course vaccinations as the basis of health system resilience. By bringing together over 50 key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers, EIP is working on what needs to change and what activities need to happen to support this desired change. We are proud to collaborate with many allied organisations and associations.





Early Diagnosis Can Make a Difference

The educational program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. Following a Peer-to-Peer educational approach, the program aims to improve everyday practice and how child healthcare professionals advise and treat the children and families they support. Pediatricians and family doctors will likely be the first healthcare professionals to observe symptoms. It is important to help these front-line clinicians suspect, diagnose, and refer patients as early as possible.
