CME-CPD Credits

The 6th World Congress of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Vienna (Virtual), Austria, 02/06/2021-05/06/2021 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 21 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Each participant can only receive the number of credits he/she is entitled to according to his/her actual participation at the event once he/she has completed the feedback form.

The credits are granted as follows:

  • Wednesday, 02 June 2021: 6 European CME credits
  • Thursday, 03 June 2021: 5 European CME credits
  • Friday, 04 June 2021: 6 European CME credits
  • Saturday, 05 June 2021: 4 European CME credits

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

USA

The UEMS-EACCME® has had an agreement of mutual recognition of credits with the American Medical Association (AMA) for live educational events and for e-learning materials since the year 2000. The agreement was renewed in 2018 for another 4 years.

The issue of territoriality is very important; both organizations are fully responsible for the activities taking place or organized within their remit. The UEMS-EACCME® is the central body for accrediting events in Europe and the AMA is the central body for recognition of CME credits in the USA.

Canada

The UEMS-EACCME® has an agreement of mutual recognition of credits with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for live educational events since the year 2011.

The issue of territoriality is very important; both organizations are fully responsible for the activities taking place or organized within their remit. The UEMS-EACCME® is the central body for accrediting events in Europe and the RCPSC is the central body for accrediting events in Canada through its accredited providers.
