Continuing Medical Education

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

The EADV will apply for 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.

Procedure to gain credits

The EADV offers individual CME-CPD participation through the scanning of the barcode on the access 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 minimum attendance for half of the session is required to qualify for CME-CPD accreditation of that session and each participant will be accredited only with the actual hours spent in sessions as recorded by the scanning process.

Participants will be logged out of the session as they scan their badge when leaving the session hall.

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.

Your CME-CPD Certificate

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 badge barcode number. Certificates will not be mailed out and copies will not be available after the one-year cutoff.

Personal Speaker Evaluation Data

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.

While attending the Spring Symposium, please feel free to pass by the CME-CPD Booth if you have any questions.
