UEMS CME CREDITS
An application will be made to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for CME accreditation of the 55th ERA-EDTA Congress and pre-congress CMEs. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
Congress members receiving certificates for ECMEC credits must contact their National Accreditation Authority to have the credits recognized (or converted) in their country of practice.
EACCME credits are recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA) towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA PRA category 1 credit, you should contact the AMA directly.
The total number of CME credits given to the ERA-EDTA Copenhagen Congress will be posted on the website as soon as they are available.

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.
