Collecting CME

Collecting CME Credits

In order to obtain the CME credits the meeting must be accredited either by the (inter)national accreditation authority or the European Board of  Urology through the EU-ACME office.
Organiser of accredited CME activity is obliged to issue a certificate of attendance with information on accreditation – name of an accreditation body, total number of granted credits. These certificates can then be presented to the demanding authority.

Therefore before attending the meeting participants should check whether an activity is accredited by advising the website of the meeting, a programme book, contact their national society or visit the CME Event Calendar.

Documental proof

Whenever you attend A LIVE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY, e.g. conference, congress, meeting, workshop, course, etc. – you should receive A CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE.
If the meeting is accredited it should be clearly stated on the certificate by which institution with the total of granted credit.

The certificate of attendance is the only valid documental proof for granting the CME credits.

Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Please note that the documental proof must be in ENGLISH .
If the documental proof is only available in the national language, we would like to receive a translation of the proof.

The accreditation requests go to the EBU Accreditation Committee through the EU-ACME office for assessment. Once the request is approved by Accreditation Committee, the credits will be granted to the EU-ACME member.

MINIMUM NUMBER OF CREDITS RECOMMENDED FOR 5 YEARS

Within the EU-ACME programme it is recommended that, in 5 years, a minimum of 250 CME credits should be obtained.
