UEMS CME CREDITS
The 55th ERA-EDTA Congress has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 23 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
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.

HOW TO RECEIVE UEMS CME CREDITS
ERA-EDTA will track attendance of congress members during the congress in the Bella Center Copenhagen each day. Regularly registered congress members must go to the session halls and scan their badge at the entrance (at participant’s own responsibility).
Congress members will then be awarded the number of credits towards the hours actually spent participating in the sessions of the congress.
All regularly registered delegates will have the possibility
to download the UEMS CME certificate from the delegates reserved area after the congress.
