For Europe, the ECR 2022, Vienna (ONSITE & ONLINE), Austria, 13/07/2022-17/07/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) for a maximum of 34 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that they actually spent in the educational activity.

A maximum of 8 CME per day, can be obtained by watching live or on-demand sessions. The total credits for the congress will not exceed the accredited 34 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) does not grant half credits.

Please note that the number of CME credits may differ from the maximum number of credits your national jurisdiction approves for your continuous medical education.

The Österreichische Ärztekammer (Austrian Medical Chamber) has granted a maximum of 40 DFP (Diplom-Fortbildungs-Programm der Österreichischen Akademie der Ärzte) credits for the ECR 2022.

Through an agreement between the UEMS 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® credits to AMA credits can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s 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.
