Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Professional Development (CDP) consist of educational activities, which serve to maintain and increase the knowledge and develop skills of urologists.

Within the CME/CPD credit system a number of units, commonly called credits, are applied to all approved CME/CPD activities. The number of credits attributed to the activities depends on the kind of activity.

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.
