Education is at the core of ESC’s strategic plan, with an objective to deliver world-class learning and professional development to the cardiovascular community.
By submitting its educational programmes for accreditation, the ESC demonstrate a strong will to deliver robust, unbiased, educational programmes built on a strong, evidence-based foundation so patients can receive the best care possible.
Accreditation means compliance with demanding criteria such as:
Each programme is reviewed and assessed individually.
All European Society of Cardiology live and online educational programmes are submitted to UEMS-EACCME for evaluation and accreditation.
The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) responsible for the evaluation and accreditation of Medical Education Programmes. UEMS-EACCME accredited programmes are awarded a number of European Credits in Continuing Medical Education (ECMEC). More information on UEMS-EACCME accreditation process.
Collect your CME certificate for participation in ESC accredited Programmes and have your CME points validated by your national accreditation authority.
Participants from below listed countries will have their CME Credits automatically recognised by their National Medical Authorities.
In case your country does not belong to the ones benefiting from a formal recognition agreement with UEMS-EACCME, you are still encouraged to submit your CME Certificate to the national accreditation authority in your country as it may as well be accepted on a case to case basis.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognized by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits 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."
