Continuing Medical Education-Continuing Professional Development

The EADV will apply for European accreditation through the EACCME (the European Accreditation Council for CME) based in Brussels. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) for mutual recognition of accreditation of EU-wide and international CME-CPD activities for live educational events. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS)

EACCME credits

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of CME credit that he/she has actually spent in the educational activity (as recorded by the scanning process) and once he/she has completed the evaluation form for each attended session.

Details and credit breakdown for the Congress will be published once the event has been officially accredited.

NOTE: Credits are NOT granted by the EADV for participation to Subspecialty meetings nor to Industry sessions.

Conversion of 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
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised 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.
Please refer to the national CME-CPD authority in your country of practice for the exchange of CME-CPD credits/points.

Personal Speaker Evaluation Data

Personal evaluation data, collected from the completed evaluation forms, will be automatically sent to the speakers. All data is treated confidentially and is generally available several months after the event.
