EU-ACME committee

In 2004 the European Board of Urology (EBU) and the European Association of Urology (EAU) joined forces to promote Continuing Medical Education amongst all urologists in Europe by creating a new committee the EU-ACME

The main responsibilities of the EU-ACME committee are the promotion and assistance in implementation of the EU-ACME programme among European urologists.

Within the EU-ACME Committee, the EBU and the EAU  have equal representation and their roles and responsibilities are clearly defined.

The EBU , through its Accreditation Committee, is charged with regulatory tasks:

  • Definition of the rules and regulations for accreditation of educational activities and institutions in accordance with the UEMS/EACCME guidelines.
  • Evaluation and accreditation of educational events in urology.

The European Association of Urology, on the other hand, represents urology professionals in Europe and worldwide with the mission to raise the level of urological care in Europe through:

  • Coordination of meetings and educational courses.
  • Distribution of (semi) scientific literature and clinical practice guidelines.

This collaboration between the EAU - main provider of scientific and educational activities - and EBU - an independent body - offers efficient tools to ensure a professional system with extensive administrative advantages and possibilities.

The EU-ACME office is fully dedicated to facilitate the administrative and logistical process.
