The World Congress of Surgery WCS 2019, Krakow, Poland has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 37 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 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.
