Continuing Medical Education

Continuing Medical Education – Continuing Professional Development (CME-CPD)

The EADV will apply European accreditation through the EACCME in Brussels. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

A maximum of 6 European CME Credits (ECMEC) will be granted for a full day attendance and 3 for half day. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she has actually spent in the educational activity.

UEMS accreditation includes a charter with the American Medical Association (AMA). EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACMME credits to AMA PRA category 1 credits, please contact the AMA.

When onsite, you are encouraged to pass by the CME-CPD Booth.


The EADV offers individual CME-CPD participation through the scanning of the barcode on the registration badge. Hostesses will scan the badge as participants pass through the entrance of each session hall.

Hostesses will empty the halls after each session while they prepare for the next one. Participants are kindly requested to leave the halls promptly at the conclusion of the session and re-enter, even if they plan to follow the next slot.

A speaker/session evaluation form will be available as you enter each session hall and should be completed and deposited with the hostesses when you leave. The form is only available at the time of the session.

Evaluation data is essential to our statistics and is of considerable help in the choice of future topics and speakers. Your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

Certification and Personal Speaker Evaluation Data

CME certificates will be available to download for a period of one year directly from for processing with the national authority in your country of practice.

It will be possible to change and modify your address if desired. The remainder of the certificate is write-protected.

For the download you will need to enter your registration barcode number (which appears on your badge) as well as your family name. Certificates will not be mailed out and copies will not be available after the one-year cut-off.

Personal evaluation data, collected from the completed evaluation forms, will be automatically sent to the speakers. All data is treated confidentially and is generally available several months after the event. It is also envisaged to publish the top ten sessions in the EADV News.

Please refer to the national CME-CPD authority in your country of practice for the exchange of CME-CPD credits/points.
