For Online participation:
UEMS/ EACCME grants one credit for each hour spent online watching scientific sessions (excl. live discussion rooms and Research Gateway consultation) between 26 August to 12 September 2022. The final number of credits you will recieve will be calculated based on your online connection time in this period and completion of the EACCME evaluation form.

The maximum of credits per day is defined by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Specialists (UEMS). The sum of the number of hours each day spent viewing sessions will give the total number of credits obtained at the end of the event.
- Friday, 26 August - 7 CME credits
- Saturday, 27 August - 8 CME credits
- Sunday, 28 August - 8 CME credits
- Monday, 29 August - 4 CME credits
The certificate is based on the real-time tracked spent viewing scientific sessions from 26 - 29 August and including the on-demand resources up to 12 September 2022. Please be aware that any tracking blockers on your device or browser may prevent us from tracking your activity properly, with the result that the CME points will not be added on your certificate of attendance and cannot be claimed after the event.
