GENERAL INFORMATION

 

CME ACCREDITATION  

The conference organisers will apply for CME accreditation with the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

Through an agreement between the EuropeanUnion of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EAC - CME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at     www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
