Accreditation

The 48th World Congress of Surgery (WCS) 2019 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) for a maximum of 37 European CME credits (ECMEC®s).

 

Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

 

The EACCME® is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.eu. 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® credits to AMA credits can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

 

Live educational activities occurring outside of Canada, recognised 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.
