CME – Continuing Medical Education

The 29th Annual Meeting and Refresher Course of ESHNR is designated up to a maximum of 17 CME credits by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
Each medical specialist should only claim those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS),

EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA ORA category 1 credit, contact the AMA.

ESHNR 2016 is using the EPOS™ system, Electronic Presentation Online System, the electronic format of the scientific exhibition. EPOS™ offers a much greater flexibility than traditional scientific exhibits and provides better options for scientific communication. Workstations will be available in the EPOS™ Area in which ESHNR 2016 posters can be viewed by the participants during the congress.
