Continuing Medical Education – Continuing Professional Development (CME-CPD)
The European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) (or) 14th EADV Spring Symposium is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists.
The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net
The 14th EADV Spring Symposium is designated for a maximum of 15 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
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 can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.
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.
A maximum of 6 European CME Credits (ECMEC) will be granted for a full-day attendance and 3 for half day. During the event, you are encouraged to pass by the CME-CPD Booth located on level-1 in the Grand Hall 1 if you have any questions.
Procedure to gain your credits
The EADV offers individual CME-CPD participation through the scanning of the QR Code on the registration badge. The only requirement is one scan of your badge per session attended. Hostesses will scan your badge as you 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.
Your CME-CPD Certificate
CME-CPD certificates will be available to download directly from the EADV website for processing with the national authority in your country of practice. The remainder of the certificate is write-protected.
For the download you will only need to enter your EADV log-in details (if you are an EADV-member) or the credentials used during the registration process (if you are a non-EADV member).
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.
