More than 18,000 urologists from Europe and beyond have already joined the EU-ACME programme. However, only 39% have collected CME/CPD credit points last year.
The Credit Registry Report states accredited activities, which credits are processed automatically, as well as the activities submitted online. All submitted activities are validated by the EU-ACME office following the EBU regulations.
Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) and Professional Development (CDP) consist of educational activities, which serve to maintain and increase the knowledge and develop skills of medical professionals.
Within the CME/CNE/CPD credit system a number of units, commonly called credits, are applied to all approved CME/CNE/CPD activities. The number of credits attributed to the activities depends on the kind of activity.
The EBU CME/CPD credit system
The number of credits considered the minimum necessary for adequate training/experience as a specialist, for a period of five years is defined by the EBU Accreditation committee.
In 2019 the CME/CPD credit system was updated giving CME and CPD more equal importance. The new regulations are valid as of 1st January 2020.
It is recommended to collect a minimum of 200 credits in five years.
The European Board of Paediatric Urology (EBPU) regulations
The number of credits considered the minimum necessary for adequate training/experience as a specialist in paediatric urology, for a period of five years is defined by the European Board of Paediatric Urology (EBPU).
Currently a total of 250 credits within these 5 years is necessary with 125 out of these pure paediatric urology.
