How can I obtain my EACCME credits?
You can apply for EACCME credits by completing the evaluation forms for the sessions you attend during the conference. You will receive an email with a link to the evaluations, which will be posted on the website during the conference. A link to download your EACCME credit certificates will be sent via email post conference. Be sure your name badge is scanned at each session that you attend at the conference to ensure that you receive accurate credits for your participation.
How can I convert my EACCME credits (ECMEC®s) to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™?
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
The UEMS-EACCME® has an agreement of mutual recognition of credits with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for live educational events since the year 2011.
For participants who come from countries outside Europe and with which EACCME does not have a recognition agreement, they may submit their CME credits to their national medical accreditation authority, that can recognize the credits on a voluntary basis.
