CME/CPD credits - MyCME

 MyCME - online CME/CPD portfolio

The EU-ACME programme gives access to an online system, which helps urologists to keep track of their educational activities, irrespective of the country they practice in or where they have participated in CME/CPD-accredited activities.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The purpose of Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is to keep physicians current in their medical practice as part of a life learning commitment to their patients and society.
The CPD/CME embrace the necessary elements of ‘Good Medical Practice’, such as knowledge, skills and performance, safety and quality, communication, partnership and teamwork, and maintaining trust. 
CPD/CME acknowledges that being a good physician includes competencies that extend beyond medical knowledge, including managerial, ethical, social, and personal skills.

The key to receiving credits is the accreditation of activities, which can be done on the national level following the regulations of a given country or the international level by EBU or the UEMS/EACCME.
 
Within the EU-ACME programme activities are accredited following the CME/CPD credit system set up by the European Board of Urology (EBU).

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

CME activities are almost always geared towards practicing physicians and are designed to provide information that is both relevant and essential to medical practice. To achieve these aims, successful CME programmes are based on effective educational principles that promote the acquisition of knowledge while promoting efficiency, professional integrity and high ethical standards.
