CME Accreditation / Certificates


The 28th congress of ECTRIMS is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS, www.uems.net).

The 28th congress of ECTRIMS is designated for a maximum of (or “for up to”) 21 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that were actually spent in the educational activity.

The CME accreditation is valid for the main congress programme and the teaching courses only and does not cover the company-sponsored satellite symposia.
