More information about the CME accreditation by EACCME® European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (as given below) for SIOG 2019 Conference will be made available. Please visit this page again.

Europe
The EACCME® has signed agreements with the majority of European countries. For a full and updated list of signed agreements in Europe please visit www.eaccme.eu. The countries with which the EACCME® has signed agreements will recognise EACCME® credits. All the other countries may recognise EACCME® credits on a voluntary basis. For these countries you will also need to apply to the central or relevant regional accreditation authority.


USA

The UEMS-EACCME® has had an agreement of mutual recognition of credits with the American Medical Association (AMA) for live educational events and for e-learning materials since the year 2000. The agreement was renewed in 2014 for another 4 years. The issue of territoriality is very important; both organisations are fully responsible for the activities taking place or organised within their remit. The UEMS-EACCME® is the central body for accrediting events in Europe and the AMA is the central body for recognition of CME credits in the USA. E-learning activities need to be certified for credit by the process in place where the CME provider is based, i.e. AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for U.S. CME providers and ECMEC® credit for organisations in countries that are represented by the UEMS.

Canada
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. The issue of territoriality is very important; both organisations are fully responsible for the activities taking place or organised within their remit. The UEMS-EACCME® is the central body for accrediting events in Europe and the RCPSC is the central body for accrediting events in Canada through its accredited providers.
