Benefits of EACCME accreditation

What is the added value of UEMS-EACCME® accreditation?

All applications submitted to the EACCME for European accreditation are reviewed according to very high-quality criteria and by medical specialists active in the field.

Accreditation by the EACCME therefore means that the CME/CPD activity provided is of high scientific value, is free of commercial bias and promotes active adult learning. 

This is of paramount importance to doctors who need to report to their National Accreditation Authority on their CME/CPD activity over a certain period of time, and this even more now that many national systems are (becoming) mandatory and not voluntary. 

As all EACCME accredited events are published on the EACCME platform, doctors can easily find an EACCME accredited event to attend according to their field of interest.

By attending an EACCME accredited event, they will be able to obtain European CME credits (ECMEC) which are recognised not only in a majority of European countries (with which the EACCME has signed agreements), but also in the USA and Canada. By handing in their EACCME certificate to their National Accreditation Authority, their credits will automatically be recognised and converted into national credits. 

EACCME accreditation is widely recognised and attracts many international participants and learners.
