CME Accreditation

The EAU20 Virtual Congress and Theme Week have been accredited by EACCME® with a maximum of 31 hours of European external CME credits.

Please note that CME credits can only be claimed for participation via the congress platform during congress hours or up to 24 hours later via the “On Demand” feature (with the exception of industry sessions and Abstract Gallery content). 

Participants will be logged and checked. An overview of the viewed sessions can be found via your MyEAU profile (under “Events – Attended Meetings”).

From 27 July, 20:00 CEST, the scientific content of the congress will be available in the EAU20 Resource Centre. This content, however, is not accredited.

  • You can now download your EAU20 Certificate of Attendance! You will need your MyEAU login details and we ask you to complete a brief survey prior to downloading.
