CME – Continuing Medical Education

The ESHNR – European Society of Head and Neck Radiology will apply for accreditation by the European Accreditation Council for Medical Education (EACCME) to provide CME activity for medical specialists. 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.
