CME Accreditation

The 37th Annual EAU Congress, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 01/07/2022-04/07/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 30 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

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.

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.

EACCME® credits Each participant can only receive the number of credits he/she is entitled to according to his/her actual participation at the event once he/she has completed the feedback form. Cf. criteria 9 and 23 of UEMS 2016.20.

In order to help you issue individual certificates to each participant, please find below the breakdown of ECMEC®s per day:

The logo may only be used in conjunction with, and in proximity to, the EACCME® accreditation statement and must not be associated with any commercial logo. The logo cannot be used in notices, advertising, or promotion of activities other than in association with the EACCME® accreditation statement.
