GENERAL INFORMATION

ECR 2020 Online (July 15-19) has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and by the Österreichische Ärztekammer (Austrian Medical Chamber).

 

Europe

For Europe, the event has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) for a maximum of 28 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Please note that the number of CME credits may differ from the maximum number of credits your national jurisdiction approves for your continuous medical education.

The Österreichische Ärztekammer (Austrian Medical Chamber) has granted a maximum of 25 DFP (Diplom-Fortbildungs-Programm der Österreichischen Akademie der Ärzte) credits for ECR 2020 Online (July 15-19). Please note that each educational session has been accredited individually as a webinar.

 

USA and Canada

Through an agreement between the UEMS and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credits to AMA credits can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognized by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s 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.
