CME Accreditation

Accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) is an essential component of continuing physician professional development. Accreditation is of utmost importance - both as proof of the top quality of the congress's scientific content and as an opportunity for delegates to collect their CME credit points.

ESICM has applied for CME credits to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®). The exact number of credits will be updated once approved.

How does it work?

    • Delegates can exchange their EACCME credits for National CME credits in their home country;
    • Physicians may have their EACCME credits converted to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit by applying to the American Medical Association at www.ama-assn.org/go/cme.

The EACCME accreditation for recorded sessions will be valid for a period of three months from the starting date of the event. After three months, viewers will not be entitled to receive EACCME credits anymore for viewing the recorded event.

To claim your CME credits you need first to complete a short questionnaire about your LIVES Digital experience, which you will receive by email. The CME certificate will then be available to download and/or print.
