Continuing Medical Education

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

The 26th Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS)

The 26th EADV Congress in Geneva is designated for a maximum of (or ‘for up to’) 25 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at

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.

EACCME credits

Each participant can only receive the number of credits he/she is entitled to according to his/her actual participation at the event.

A maximum of 7 European CME Credits (ECMEC) will be granted for a full-day attendance  to this Congress, as recorded by the scanning process.

NOTE: Credits are NOT granted by the EADV for participation to Subspecialty (or Sister Society) meetings on Wednesday and Industry sessions (Satellites and Meet-the-Experts)

Should you have any question during the event, you are encouraged to pass by the CME-CPD Booth located in the Lower Level of the Congress Centre.


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. Several seconds will be required to ensure the badges are scanned correctly.

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

Few weeks after the event, CME-CPD certificates will be available to download directly from for processing with the national authority in your country of practice.

For the download you will need to enter the email address and password that was used during the registration process (or your EADV credentials if you are a member).

Certificates will not be mailed out. It will be possible to change and modify your address if desired. The remainder of the certificate is write-protected.

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.
