The Pneumology speciality in Portugal must accompany the natural evolution of Medicine and contribute to creating competent experts, adapted to new challenges within the European Community. Some changes are currently in the process of implementation, directed at improving the learning experience of future Pneumology specialists in order to obtain the Common Certificate of Pneumology. A survey related to the training in this speciality was conducted to ascertain the opinions and suggestions of Residents, Tutors and Directors of Pneumology departments in Portugal.
