The European Human Genetics Conference (ESHG 2020), June 6-9, 2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 28 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. The daily credit breakdown as follows:

  • June 6, 2020: 8 credits
  • June 7, 2020: 7 credits
  • June 8, 2020: 7 credits
  • June 9, 2020: 6 credits

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 www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-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.
